Ray McGuire get’s Nas, Jay-Z and Diddy’s endorsement for mayor of New York
Hip-hop icons Jay-Z, Nas and Diddy are lends their voices in endorsing Ray McGuire for New York City mayor. The veteran rappers appeared on a Zoom call with McGuire, Angie Martinez and Steve Stoute in a solidarity move to discuss their mayoral candidate’s “inclusive comeback” plan for the city.
“When New York’s the most vibrant, It was because it was a destination for people to come there and create,” Jay-Z said.
The Hip Hop mogul revealed that he reached out to McGuire to run a fund he was planning to start for black and brown people. “He told me about his plans for running for mayor. I was like, man, there goes that! I understood where he was coming from,” he said.
Queens native Nas stressed how broken the city is, and said he’s endorsing McGuire because “I haven’t heard anyone say anything about it, and everything he’s is saying is what I want to hear.”
Meanwhile, it is reported that Diddy’s role in the campaign goes beyond just endorsing McGuire. “Puffy is going to be an integral part in how we reach voters. He knows the communities Ray needs to reach and he’s an integral part in driving that. Only Puffy can make a mayoral campaign sexy,” a campaign insider said.
