Rhymefest

This is not very surprising for anyone that knows Che "Rhymefest" Smith. The dude is opinionated. However, since taking home a Grammy Award for co-writing Kanye West's "Jesus Walks," Smith has turned his attention to battling the social issues that plague his native Chicago. After falling short on his bid to be elected a city Alderman in 2011, Smith is now set to launch a new radio talk show to address issues that impact inner cities. He hasn't given up his music completely, however. Fest plans on putting out a book and new album this year.
