BROOKLYN - A 2011 gubernatorial candidate is making a comeback in his bid for New York mayor.

Jimmy McMillan, who represented "The Rent Is Too Damn High Party" in the race for governor two years ago, is utilizing a rap video to boost his election chances. McMillan released the video several months ago, saying he wanted to rap to reach a younger audience.

McMillan adds that his message remains the same despite the difference in delivery.

"Landlords are destabilizing buildings in New York, taking a two-year lease to a one-year lease," he says.
