Che “Rhymefest” Smith
Che “Rhymefest” Smith
A self-proclaimed "rap-tivist," this Grammy-winning writer and producer serves as an outspoken leader for Chicago's South Side, the community where he first developed his voice. His campaign for alderman of the 20th Ward echoes as a political sequel to the hit song he co-authored with Kanye West, "Jesus Walks;" the rapper kick-started his campaign by declaring that "the definition of revolution is love."

Che "Rhymefest" Smith is making history ... by using his music-industry clout to draw awareness to poverty and economic struggles at home. As a recording artist, he testified in front of Congress for the Performance Rights Act about the rights artists have to receiving their royalties. In 2006, Smith met with British Prime Minister David Cameron to foster social activism in the hip-hop community in the U.S. and abroad.
