As you may already know, Jimmy McMillan is running in the 2013 NYC mayoral race, and now the Rent Is Too Damn High candidate has released a new music video to support his campaign. The East Village–set "Debate" shows McMillan's daughter working at Papaya King and struggling to keep her apartment while he raps, "You're working all day, working all night, giving all your hard-earned money to the landlord—that ain't right."
