Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman is Seen Boppin' and Bustin' Rhymes in a New Rap Video

Posted By on Fri, Oct 25, 2013 at 11:01 AM

Columbus mayor Michael B. Coleman's rap video went up on YouTube yesterday. The song, called "Succeed," features local rappers Marquis Mitchell and William Pace with the chorus performed by students from the Columbus Arts and Technology Academy.

The rap song is intended to encourage kids to stay in school. Coleman (sadly) doesn't do much rapping, but he's a good sport throughout the video and bops along in the background (see 1:07). He also helps to sing the chorus (see 0:47). The video features appearances by various professionals, such as firefighters and judges.

Check out 1:57-2:06 for some particularly awkward and entertaining dancing by said professionals. The video currently has 1,351 views.
