Reverend Al Sharpton is endorsing Chicago emcee Rhymefest in his race for Alderman of Chicago’s 20th ward. The elections will be held on April 5th.
Rhymefest’s team issued a statement from Sharpton announcing Sharpton’s endorsement:
“We are always asking for our youth, our entertainers, to come back and make a difference in their communities. We are asking them to get involved and give back. Che is doing that. I am here today because I support Che Rhymefest Smith. If he was a negative force, I would not be here today.”
