Andy Kropa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jimmy McMillan, who skyrocketed to fame when he ran for New York governor in 2010 with his campaign slogan, “the rent is too damn high,” has entered the race for New York City mayor.

McMillan — who ironically lived in a rent controlled apartment up until his eviction in 2011 — announced his candidacy via rap, titled “Rent Is Too Damn High.”

His message:
I’m on a mission again, to give the people my word.
The rent around here’s too damn absurd!
The rent and the deficit is too damn high.

The rap continues: The rent is too damn high. My mustache and haircut is too damn fly.

There’s no polling to measure McMillan’s impact.
