Cynthia Nixon Made a Guest Appearance at the Eric B & Rakim Show

Eric B for President, Cynthia Nixon for Governor

On Monday night, Eric B. & Rakim performed at Irving Plaza in New York City. A couple of minutes into their set, which included classics like “Don’t Sweat the Technique” and “I Ain’t No Joke,” the music stopped.

She goes on to say “I’m here because I want to be governor of New York State. I was born here, I grew up here, with my mom, in a one bedroom, five flight walk up.”
