Move over Marty Markowitz, Ruben Diaz Jr. has taken the crown as New York’s rappingest Borough President.
A little over a month after Brooklyn’s Mr. Markowitz rapped a few bars with Wu Tang Clan member GZA, Mr. Diaz, the Bronx Borough President, joined hip hop legend Doug E. Fresh on stage at Bronx Week Sunday to perform his hit song “La Di Da.” Their duet was captured on video by an audience member.
Mr. Diaz mostly took a backseat to Mr. Fresh and played the role of hype man, but his performance is more rapping, by far, than we can recall seeing from any other politician. No word on whether or not Mr. Fresh taught Mr. Diaz how to “Dougie.”
Watch the clip of their performance below.
