10 (er, 13)With Podcast: Rhymefest

By Karl Klockars in News on Oct 22, 2010 3:00PM

2010_10_22_10withrhymefest.jpg You may have heard that one Che "Rhymefest" Smith is running for Alderman. In fact, that might be all you've heard. You've seen the video, but we haven't heard much about the issues - until now.

We spoke with Rhymefest to discuss his platform planks of Development, Rebuilding, Growth and Unity. We talked about what current Alderman Willie Cochran has or hasn't done to warrant his removal as alderman. We talked about if a political victory means a retirement from music. We talked about sitting down with Jody Weis. And you can hear all of it right here.

If you want to ask your own questions, you can try to quiz the candidate when he appears at the DuSable museum today for the "One Root" Youth Summit & Spoken Word event. Until then, spend 10With (or today, more like 13With) us.

To listen, just press play: Rhymefest, Running
