Rhymefest is taking part in a public vigil in order to remember those who have lost their lives to gun violence in Chicago. Last month, it was reported that the city had already seen over 500 gun-related deaths (and over 3,000 total shootings).
Chicago rapper and philanthropist Rhymefest posted a video to Twitter today documenting his experience at his local police station, where he attempted to report a robbery in which he was held at gunpoint Sunday morning.
The trailer for Spike Lee's new film "Chi-Raq" debuted on Tuesday to much intrigue and mixed feelings. The consensus from Chicago rappers seems to be that the trailer is at best a joke, at worst a travesty.
