Congressman Reviews Jay-Z’s New Album on TwitterBy: Josh Wolford - July 16, 2013
On Twitter, Florida Republican Congressman Trey Radel describes himself as a “husband, father, entrepreneur, champion of conservative causes.” Maybe he should add “aspiring hip hop head” to the list.
For the past couple of hours, in a series of tweets, Radel has been reviewing Jay-Z’s new album Magna Carta… Holy Grail. Yep, you heard that correctly. He had some time to kill on a flight to D.C., so, you know, what the hell right?
He goes track by track, giving his opinion on sick beat drops and Jay-Z’s bounty of musical references. There are also a few Kanye West digs in there.
I guess this shouldn’t really come as a surprise considering Radel has put his affinity for rap on the record. According to recent profile in The Hill, Radel says he even produces his own remixes of classic songs called “Beats by Trey.”
Twitter’s Government team used the review-by-tweets to point on how politicians can help themselves connect via social media by being a little more real and accessible. “Share personal interests, not just politics” as they put it.
Still waiting on the #factsonly response from @S_C_.
