William James Dennis, known to the Hip Hop world as Willie D, is making a run for Houston City Council. The outspoken rapper is hoping to take his passion for discussing politics on social media to having direct influence with a council seat.
The Houston native took to Instagram to announce his run for District B and asked for support from his tenured fans. “What’s better than one Geto Boy running for City Council? It’s on family,” he captioned on the post. “This is the next step in my evolution to serve and I need your help!”
