"Scarface is running for Houston City Council"


  

          

Has a rapper held elected office yet? At some point, someone's got to, hope he can do this.

https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Rapper-Scarface-announces-run-for-Houston-City-13965304.php?utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=twitter.com

Your mind isn't playing tricks. A former member of the pioneering hip-hop group Geto Boys could wind up representing a large part of the city.

Brad Jordan, better known as his rap moniker "Scarface," on Sunday announced his bid for Houston City Council District D. The seat is currently held by Councilman Dwight Boykins, who recently filed paperwork indicating he will run for mayor, according to earlier reports in the Houston Chronicle.

The district includes the Texas Medical Center, the Astrodome area, the Museum District, Texas Southern University and the University of Houston. City officials confirmed that Jordan has already filed a campaign treasurer, Oma Terry.

"It's official," the rapper said in an Instagram post. "I'm offering myself for service as the next Houston City Councilmember for District D. Join our movement! More details to come. www.bradfordistrictd.com."

Fellow Houston rappers Paul Wall and Bun B have already showed their support for Jordan's announcement online. "I'm here for this!" Bun B said in a comment on the post.

The announcement came one day before another former Geto Boys rapper Richard Shaw, aka Bushwick Bill, died of pancreatic cancer in Colorado at age 52.

Shaw and Jordan's work with the group helped put Houston on the map in the hip-hop world. City officials have also highlighted Jordan's educational initiatives.

Last year, Boykins and Mayor Sylvester Turner presented Jordan with a proclamation dedicating June 26 as "Brad 'Scarface' Jordan Day," according to CW39.

Jordan is a founding member of The Positive Purpose Movement, which supports education and empowerment programs for underrepresented communities. The rapper also talked to local students last year about bringing music entrepreneurship programs to their schools.

"Through the hard work and dedication of our team and our chairman Brad 'Scarface' Jordan, we are able to stay committed to our vision of 'putting the neighbor back in the hood,'" according to the Positive Purpose Movement's website.

There's no way of getting around any derogatory or misogynistic or homophobic lyrics. The media is gonna have a field day with his history.

Not saying it won't be an issue, but probably not as big of one since it's not a state or federal position he's running for. I suppose we'll see what happens, but I'll be rooting for him. Glad to see the city of Houston has already recognized his positive contributions to the community.

spent in a city will garner a different level of scrutiny. Being a legend for some may not mean anything to the average tax paying, voting, citizen. I'm just being objective.
