| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The next municipal election is really getting interesting. After considerable speculation and rumor, Grammy-winning rapper Che "Rhymefest" Smith is set to announce this week he's running for alderman in the 20th Ward, which includes parts of Back of the Yards, Englewood and Woodlawn.

He'll be up against incumbent Willie Cochran. Rhymefest co-wrote "Jesus Walks" with fellow Chicago rapper Kanye West.

As this video advertises, Rhymefest's first campaign event will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Exclusively Yours Auto Spa, 5820 S. State.
