It's not every day that you see a government official who's got BARZ. Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter took the stage at the city's 4th of July Jam last night, where he put on this impressive rendition of The Sugar Hill Gang's classic "Rapper's Delight" backed by the Roots. Mayor Nutter used to be a DJ, and it was through DJing that he eventually got involved in politics. Watch to the end of the video where he breathlessly finishes the verse before dropping the mic and closing out with a bow.
