Luther Campbell Ready to Run for Mayor of Miami if Alvarez is Recalled


Rapper Luther Campbell says he will run for mayor of Miami if current mayor Carlos Alvarez is ousted in the recall election set for March 15.

Campbell, the former 2 Live Crew frontman and onetime adult-film star, now writes a column for Miami New Times, where he laid out his agenda:

  • Pushing city and county officials to go after slumlords.
  • Implementing beautification efforts in the city's poorest areas.
  • Instituting three types of public schools -- "one for kids who plan to attend college, one for those who don't, and a third for the knuckleheads,"

Two decades ago, Campbell wrangled with Florida authorities who tried to ban Crew's 1989 album, "As Nasty As They Wanna Be," on obscenity charges. Campbell & Co. prevailed at the U.S. Supreme Court.
