Rapper to run for mayor

In his studio in the Bristol Polish Club building recently, rapper Jason “Fury” Flores insisted his YouTube smash hailing his hometown isn’t the slightest bit tongue-in-cheek.
“The city of Bristol really is pretty perfect,” said Flores, a 25-year-old city native whose music has attracted national attention on the hip-hop circuit.
“People probably take Bristol for granted,” he said. “It really is a beautiful city and a wonderful place to raise a family.”
In its first week online, Flores’ “Bristol State of Mind” – a local version of the hit song about New York by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys – has attracted nearly 12,000 viewers in an ever escalating trend.
“It’s getting played all over” the country, said Troy Wilson, a friend who works with Flores.
The Bristol song, which includes some offensive words despite its generally positive outlook, features Flores rapping about everything from “the Christmas decorations on the lamp posts in the winter” to a legendary drive-through worker at Taco Bell.
“I’m just the king to a throne in the city that has taught me everything that I’ve known,” Flores raps in the song.  Click here for the full story.

Is this another republican recruit, along with Hill, Alford, Johnson, Lawton, and whoever else you can remember?

May God help Bristol. His rap song was an insult to Bristol and he has been given too much attention already.

Let's agree that both the Bristol Democrat and Republican candidates and elected officials have a lot to be desired.

I agree the leadership in bristol is nothing or less. Any one with guts to make one cut in savings has got my vote unless my condo sells and i could get the hell outof here. Isee the mayor has his union flunks all over the blog covering for him. Hows the rehab going.
