Last month, social media personality and “unofficial talent scout of New York City” Nicolas Heller (better known as New York Nico) announced that he had partnered with New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority to curate new subway announcements about COVID-19, recorded by various famous New Yorkers. The announcements include reminders to wear masks and practice social distancing, as the New York Times reports.
Today, the full slate of figures involved with the project has been revealed, with several notable artists among them. Cam’ron, Jadakiss, Fivio Foreign, Maliibu Miitch, Young M.A, and Dave East have all recorded announcements for the project, as have comedians like Eric Andre and Jerry Seinfeld. Elsewhere on the list are the Bodega Boys (Desus Nice and THE KID MERO), Broad City creators Abbi Jacobson and Illana Glazer, Fran Lebowitz, and NYC radio personalities Peter Rosenberg and Angela Yee, among others. It’s unclear if the announcements are limited to specific stations. Check out the full list of participants below.
