Episode #15 – Norm Kelly

It is not often politicians get involved in “beef” between rappers, but that is exactly what “6 Dad” Norm Kelly, Toronto councillor and former deputy mayor, did, coming to Drake’s defense on Twitter when attacked by Meek Mill over his lyrical content. Norm went so far as to tell Drizzy’s antagonist: stay out of Toronto. The response he got from Meek? “Aye white man what gives you the audacity to tell me I can’t come somewhere over me voicing my opinion! U sound like a thug lol.” Still chuckling at the incident, Norm talks to Paul and Jordan about his unlikely popularity in the world of hip-hop, the controversy surrounding his “overuse” of social media, and why, after three decades, he remains a steadfast politician.
