Aspiring rapper names himself Rhymes Priebus

Playing off the name of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, a 26-year-old aspiring rapper in Chicago is apparently referring to himself as “Rhymes Priebus.”

The apparent wanna-be hip-hop star got attention Thursday after reporters covering President Barack Obama got wind of his name during a trip to Chicago.

The unemployed rapper spent Thursday driving members of the press in Obama’s motorcade, according to a pool report distributed to reporters.

The driver was described as an “a 26-year-old Indian American unemployed aspiring economist and rapper who told us his stage name is, no joke, ‘Rhymes Priebus.'”

Whether “Rhymes Priebus” can actually bust a rhyme is unknown: A Google search of the name yielded no evidence that he actually exists.
