We told you this weekend about Charlie Rangel’s flash mob dance party on the streets of Harlem. Well, in addition to the Electric Slide and the Cupid Shuffle, the campaign also blasted from its speakers a rap written by a “very enthusiastic Rangel supporter.”
Sample lyrics include: “If you’re voting for Charlie put your hand up high, yeah suit and tie, yes he’s superfly, if you’re a Democrat yeah that’s the guy, yeah that’s my guy, check the box … ” The rapper, according to the Rangel camp, is Londel Davis III, rap name Fireboy LD. Fireboy might be Rangel’s biggest fan. His Facebook page is filled with Rangel pictures and news articles.
If Rangel loses his primary Tuesday, we aren’t sure who will be more devastated, the 84-year-old congressman or his rapper friend.
Colleague Jackie Kucinich helpfully pulled some other campaign songs through the ages in case you’re looking to make the most nerdy summer road-trip playlist ever. Check out our post over at Post Politics for a little political sing-a-long.
