Hip-hop mogulsDamon Dashand Marc Ecko have announced that they will be supporting journalist and hip-hop historian Kevin Powell’s bid for Congress.
Dash and Ecko are set to host a fundraising event for Powell at Dash’s Dash Gallery @ DD112, located in the Tribeca area of New York.
Kevin Powell said: “I have decided to run for Congress here in Brooklyn, New York, because it is the right and necessary thing to do. As a long-time resident of this district, I am outraged by the many pockets of fear and despair in our neighbourhoods, the arrested development in our communities, and the halting sense that life will never improve for us.
"During my first Congressional campaign in 2008, I proposed that a brighter future is possible for our district. I travelled a long and difficult road against a comfortably entrenched Democratic incumbent, but I did not give up on the possibilities of what our community and our nation can become. I am running again now in the 2010 election to bring those possibilities into reality.”
