Last month Cynthia Nixon, best known for playing Miranda on Sex and The City, announced that she is running for governor of New York. Last night, April 9, Nixon popped up at Eric B and Rakim's show at Irving Plaza to address the crowd and garner support for her campaign. You can check out the slightly surreal footage above.
Nixon has promised to improve public education, wealth disparity, and the subway system in New York if she is elected. Getting two of the city's hip-hop icons on board is an unlikely place to start but every vote counts.
