Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Senator Tim Kaine, declared to the hosts of a Hip Hop radio station that people should call him “Lil’ Kaine, not Lil’ Wayne.”

Appearing on the “No Limit Larry & The Morning Maddhouse” show on Charlotte’s FM 98 on October 12, Kaine decided to kick off his segment tell the North Carolina hosts that he has a new nickname.

Just before going to Kaine for the interview, host “No Limit Larry” noted that the station had just played a song by rapper Lil’ Wayne and to the Maddhouse crew’s amused laughter, Kaine told the DJs, “Hey, Larry and Jessica, I’m doing great. They call me Lil’ Kaine not Lil’ Wayne.”

Wayne is a noted rap artist, and also provides some sports commentary.
