Dupré Kelly @DoItAll from the Legendary Platinum Hip-Hop Selling Group Lords of the Underground Announces His Candidacy for Newark City Council

Published

on

Dupré “Doitall” Kelly is now an official candidate on the ballot  for the upcoming May 8, 2018 in Newark, NJ after turning in over 2,000 petitions.

Throughout his life, Dupré Kelly has always had a passion for the City of Newark and a drive to serve his community. In 1994, Mayor of Newark Sharpe James, honored his group with their very own Lords of The Underground Day making September 28th an annual holiday. Whether through his music, his fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha, business endeavors or his not for profit organization Dupré serves his community in many capacities. He is co-founder of 211 Community Impact a not-for-profit 501c3 company in Newark, NJ. 211 Community Impact helps through its grassroots programs addressing literacy, homelessness, mental health and wellness, education, gun violence and currently runs many youth activities. Furthermore, he is Co-CEO of 211 Media Group, a company that specializes in all aspects of media, television and film production as well as event planning and consulting. When elected Du-Kelly will make history as the first Platinum selling Hip-Hop artist to hold public office.

As Councilman at Large Dupré Kelly wants to address several issues:

  • Lack of funding for Youth Programming and Summer Jobs. In order to secure a better tomorrow for us all, we must make greater investments in our youth today. This year over 5,000 Newark youth applied to the Mayor’s summer youth program. Because of funding constraints the City was only able to roughly employ 2,500 students. By expanding private investment by $2 million for the Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program we can truly leave no child behind.
  • Initiate Greater Activities through Arts & Culture. It is through Dupré Kelly’s extensive artistic experience he believes that the arts drive creativity and creativity spurs jobs creation. The latest data from the Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account ( A collaboration of the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA))  reveals that the arts and cultural sector contributed $729.6 billion or 4.2 percent to the U.S. economy that year. Between 1998 and 2014, the contribution of arts and culture to the nation’s gross domestic product grew by 35.1 percent. Locally, in 2016 Newark’s Arts and Culture Industry generated $178.3 million annually, providing residents income of $133.7M and supporting 4,963 jobs.
  • Lack of Civic Engagement (Neighborhood Inclusion).  We must begin to move the wards out of their individual cultural silos. Encourage a new philosophy on the City Council to move away with protectionist attitudes and work together to serve the interest of the entire city. Doitall will work with stakeholders to make sure the neighborhoods are included in our current economic renaissance. Doitall will create a massive ward by ward initiative encouraging our seniors to volunteer in mentoring and assisting our youth through our city programs.


Dupré Kelly intends to move beyond campaign lines to move the city forward through arts & culture. Newark needs new energy on the City Council.  For media please contact Cordelia Donovan at iam@cordeliadonovaninc.com or call (646)678‑6048 and for campaign inquiries please contact campaign manager Monico Cruz at monicodoitallfornewark@gmail.com or call (973)536‑3729.
