A CuomoP DiddyP.Diddy and Russell Simmons are trying to stage a protest in Foley Square downtown. No, it's not to protest the smoking ban or not allowing people to carry concealed weapons in clubs, it's to protest the unfairness of Rockefeller drug laws. The Post says "organizers have already passed out 300,000 fliers and run radio ads publicizing Wednesday's extravaganza, which will feature numerous hip-hop bigwigs including Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs, Jay-Z, the Beastie Boys and Eve." One of the issues is that Foley Square only holds 1500, while organizers think 200,000 will come.

Andrew Cuomo has also been seen helping the rappers with the cause. Gothamist sees this as a sure sign that Andrew Cuomo is trying to hitch his political aspirations with the mainstream urban demographic.
