SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A beat-boxing rapper is making a political bid in Syracuse, New York.

The Post-Standard (https://bit.ly/2jsbttW ) says Joe Driscoll will seek the Democratic nomination to run in the fifth district for the Syracuse Common Council.

The full-time musician and outspoken activist recently returned to Syracuse after living in England for more than a decade.

The seat is currently occupied by Democrat Nader Maroun, who’s being forced out of office by term limits. Maroun has served four two-year terms on the council.
