NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A member of hip-hop trio Lords of the Underground says he’s running for political office in New Jersey.
Dupre “Doitall” Kelly announced Thursday that he plans to run for an at-large council seat in Newark next year.
Lords of the Underground, whose songs include “Chief Rocka” and “Tic Toc,” won BET’s best rap group award in 1993.
Kelly says he wants to expand arts and culture industry in Newark.
All nine of Newark’s city council seats are up for election next May. This will be Kelly’s first run for political office.
