Chicago rapper Rhymefest is planning a run for office in the November General Election in Chicago.

Fest will be running for Alderman for the South Side of Chicago’s 20th Ward.

Rhymefest took to twitter, to announce his intentions “Its already starting! I talk about helping my community and the villains are attacking my character and family!” He tweeted “I won’t stop The 20th Ward in Chicago needs help, shorties are out here selling dope to pay the family bills. Grandmothers are raising their children’s children, people are un-employed and under employed & leadership is absent!”

El Che will hold a press conference to make a formal announcement at the Exclusively Yours on South State Street in downtown Chicago.
