Who’s down with HRC? 

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is getting tons of endorsements from rap stars and her campaign is clearly enjoying the love.

Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, has recently earned the support of rappers 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Ja Rule, and Waka Flocka Flame.

So many rap endorsements piled up that comedian Jimmy Fallon gave Clinton a new nickname at the end of last week.

“Thank you Hillary Clinton for getting endorsed for president by several rappers. Which explains your new nickname: ‘Ghostface Hill,'” Fallon quipped on “The Tonight Show.”

Clinton’s campaign responded to the segment Tuesday with a nickname of their own, “Run HRC,” which is based on the Queens hip-hop group Run DMC, As The New York Times recently noted, the Clinton campaign is attempting to rebrand its candidate with a cooler image.
