Colbert Challenges Steele to Rap-Off

Colbert Challenges Steele to Rap-Off

Nas’s favorite faux newscaster offers to help the new Republican National Committee chairman take the GOP’s message to the streets (and cul de sacs).


In interviews with the Washington Times and Politico,
Steele has taken to
using hip-hop lingo to make over the Republican Party. In an effort to
help Steele fully realize his nascent rebranding strategy for the “Grand
Old Posse,” Colbert wants the chairman to come on his show for a “frank
discussion of core conservative principals in the form of freestyle
rap.” Fo sheezy.
