Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell, who ran for Mayor last year and lost in a runoff, tells Hip-Hop Wired he will be for office again in four years. While speaking to the Hip-Hop legend, whose 1989 offering As Nasty As They Wanna Be with 2 Live Crew become one of the first LPs to get a Parental Advisory sticker for its graphic content, took home 11% of the votes in 2011.
While speaking with the Campbell at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, he spoke about the importance of voting in local elections before announcing his plans to run for office. “The most important elections are one that effect your community every day,” says Uncle Luke.
“Who is going to be the next mayor? Who is going to be the next police chief? How much money does the district get that didn’t get money to go into the local communities? Those elections are much more important than presidential elections and we have a tendency to not show up.”
