Jimmy McMillan Rap: The Rent is Too Damn High Anthem

Jimmy McMillan, who gained notoriety in 2010 during as run for New York governor as the nominee for The Rent is Too Damn High Party, is running for mayor of New York City this year. And he's back with the same message for New Yorkers (as if they didn't know already): the rent is still too damn high. In the video he announces,

"The rent is too damn high! I'm Jimmy McMillan. In 2013, I'm runnin' for mayor, come and run with me. It's been two long years, since I came on the scene, now I'm back in the game lookin' mean and lean. The race may be different, but the message is the same: RITDH (Rent is Too Damn High Party) is gonna change the game."


McMillan may not be the most viable mayoral candidate in this year's field, but he's certainly the most entertaining.
