Video of the Day: AJC reporter turned rapper explains today’s elections

Washington Correspondent Daniel Malloy drops the beat, as well as some knowledge on the Perdue/Kingston runoff

AJC reporter Daniel Malloy, known on the streets as D-Mal, has donned his shades and fired up his webcam for a political rap about today’s Republican senate runoff election. You may recognize him from the verses he dropped back in May, like “In the senate race, that’s where it gets tricky / Five people, two slots, people get picky.” Well, now it’s down to two–U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston and businessman David Perdue– and Malloy hasn’t missed a beat. Well, technically, he misses a few. But what he lacks in flow, he makes up for in fervor.

Where the Washington correspondent learned his rap skills, we’ll never know. And hey, the AJC seems pretty pumped about the video. But, in the words of Gawker reporter Hamilton Nolan, “There is absolutely no reason for this to exist.”
