The 2016 race for the Republican presidential nomination is officially nuts — “Deez Nuts.”

The race, which already comprises 17 major candidates, got an additional entrant this week who has fashioned his name after an infamous rap song.

A person named “Deez Nuts” filed official paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to run for President Sunday, CBS News reported, joining more than 500 other random contenders who have the legal right to run for the presidency.

More shockingly, however, is how well Nuts, who is running as an independent, is faring in the key state of North Carolina, where, according a to a Public Policy Polling poll, the mysterious figure got the support of 9% of likely voters.

Nuts, of Wallingford, Iowa, also got the support of 8% of likely voters in Minnesota and 7% in of likely voters in Iowa, the poll found.

Nuts has not yet filed any campaign contributions with the FEC, the Washington Times reported.

Little else, if anything, is currently known of Nuts, who registered under a name known widely as the sixth track on Dr. Dre’s critically acclaimed 1992 album “The Chronic.”

The song, titled “Deeez Nuuuts” contains a bevy of sexually explicit lyrics laid over a catchy beat.

At least 512 people have formally filed a statement of candidacy for the 2016 presidential election with the Federal Election Commission, according to CBS News.
