Killer Mike—rapper, national hero and increasingly prominent voice in the very narrow Venn overlap between pop culture figures and purveyors of political nuance—has announced, via this Instagram, his write-in candidacy for the Georgia House of Representatives, District 55.
In Atlanta Georgia there will be special election tomorrow for District 55. Former state representative Tyrone Brooks no longer sits in the seat. I would like as many people as possible to go to the polls and write in Michael Render. Why because if I win we win. Thank you now go vote 🇺🇸
(Tyrone Brooks, a Democrat, pled guilty in April to a federal charge of filing a false tax claim, as well as five no-contest pleas to charges of wire and mail fraud; he subsequently resigned from office after 35 years in the Georgia House.)
District 55 is in Atlanta, and the special election for Brooks’s spot will go down tomorrow. Tell your Atlanta fam to go vote Killer Mike today!
