'Me So Horny' Rapper Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew Running for Mayor (Miami)
AOL News ^ | Feb 4, 2011 | Michael McLaughlin

"Politics" is the latest dirty word for rapper Luther Campbell to work into his vocabulary.

Campbell, the raunchy rapper from 2 Live Crew, is running for Miami-Dade County mayor in Florida and thinks he could boost the economy with a tax on exotic dancers.

"I'm mad frustrated," Campbell said about crime in his hometown in an interview in the Miami New Times. "Why aren't we getting it right in Miami-Dade? Why is our government only serving one set of people? That's what is pushing me to run."

Retna / Corbis; Michael Ochs Archives / Getty Images Pictured is Luther Campbell today, left, and as part of 2 Live Crew in 1990. The emcee known for the 1989 hit song "Me So Horny" blasted the slow pace of construction at Miami International Airport and the bloated government workforce as wastes of taxpayer money.

He opposes raising taxes and wants to shore up a local hospital that treats a high number of uninsured patients, but a key plank of his platform would be to tax exotic dancers.

Frank Sinatra: Next issue: this crap with M-TV. With the nudity and all. What is this crap? Sinbad O'Connor.

Sinead O'Connor: Well, I think it's bloody awful. But it's typical of entertainment in a male-dominated society.

Frank Sinatra: Boo-hoo! You had me, and then you lost me! Billy Idol.

Billy Idol: I think it's great.

Frank Sinatra: Shut up! Luther Campbell.

Luther Campbell: Well, that's my bread and butter, man.

Frank Sinatra: Once more around, pal. Sounds like pops and buzzes from here.

Luther Campbell: I said, that's my bread and butter, man. Frank Sinatra: No, you're wrong, schoolboy. You don't need to work blue! You'll never play the big rooms with that crap. Ask Redd Foxx. You don't need the blue stuff, kid, you got talent!

Luther Campbell: But I don't have talent.

Frank Sinatra: You've got it, kid. You listen to me - you've got a Ben Vereen quality, I can't put my finger on it. Take the high road, baby!

Luther Campbell: I swear, man, I don't have any talent. None! This is all I got. [ to Billy Idol ] Tell him, man.

Billy Idol: Yeah, he sucks!

Sinead O'Connor: He's not talented.

Frank Sinatra: No, Bob Goulet - that's not talented! You got talent! You got a Dionne Warwick/Falana kind of thing going. Steve and Eydie?

Could be, but what I read of the article makes it sound like he is talking about beaurocrats and government workers. Even if he may be sleazy, he may be best running. Don’t really know

If that’s the case then I’m all for him. Shake them up.

Maybe he could impose a junk-in-the-trunk tax against some of those fat-@ssed hoes he employs in his so-called ‘music’ videos.

That would balance the budget overnight.

Sure he is a sleaze, but he is an HONEST sleaze, something you can’t say about the others running for office. Tell ya what, I’d consider voting for him....

Maybe this will be a new way for him to funnel money to Miami Hurricanes football players.

This being Miami, he’s probably implying Hispanics as opposed to “Anglo” whites.
