Uncle Luke Officially Running For Mayor

dd Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell is officially set to begin his campaign trail in a run for Mayor of Miami-Dade County.

The former 2 Live Crew rapper is one of twelve people that filed proper paperwork this week to run in a special election for Mayor on May 24th. Former Mayor, Carlos Alvarez, was removed from office in a recall election on March 15.

Campbell said a big hurdle is getting people to take his Mayor aspirations seriously. His campaign will focus on economic development, public safety, affordable housing and revitalizing the community.

County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez, Gabrielle Redfern, former Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina, Jose ‘Pepe’ Cancio, activist Jeffery Lampert, among others are Campbell’s opponents in the race for Mayor.

Hip-hop artists like Wyclef Jean, who attempted to run for President of Haiti, and Rhymefest, who failed in a run for Chicago City Council, have not faired too well in politics.

Still, if an actor born in Austria, best known for playing The Terminator in movies can be elected Governor of California, there is a good chance that a former rapper from Miami, best known for the song “Me So Horny,” can be elected Mayor of his home city.

Good luck to Uncle Luke.
