Just in time for election day comes the release of a Farouk Shami-themed hip-hop song put out by the official campaign. Houston rapper J. Xavier* penned and performs it. This is not a parody.

The chorus:

Who's got the new solutions for Texas/ FAROUK

When it comes to the state, who's gone rep it/ FAROUK

Farouk Farouk, Farouk is on fi-ah

Serving the community, his numba one desiah

*FUN FACT: At the age of 12, Xavier won PAX-TV's America’s Most Talented Kids Show contest.
