    Rhymefest, a fellow Chicago rapper and associate of Kanye West, is entering the political arena. He announced at a press conference on last Thursday that he intends to run for alderman of the 20th Ward at the Chicago City Council. "We can use hip-hop to engage our youth and the community," said Rhymefest, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "It's often portrayed as a weapon. It's not. It's a tool."

    Rhymefest – real name Che Smith- does have a point there. Hip-hop can certainly be used as an instrument of social change and a communicator.

    Would you vote for Rhymefest? Should Kanye West be his campaign manager?
