Alvin Greene rap video removed from YouTube

COLUMBIA (WACH) -- A rap video on YouTube centered around Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Alvin Greene has been removed.

Last week, the video called "Alvin Greene is on the Scene," had gone viral gaining thousands of views an hour.

The producers of the video apparently used copyrighted material in the clip.

When you go to the video now, it displays a message saying "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Frank Strategies, LLC."

According to CNN, the video featured scenes from a Tea Party rally last year. That footage is apparently owned by Frank Strategies, LLC.

Before the video was removed, Greene mentioned that if he heard the song in a club, he'd dance to it.
