Rhymefest is running for Alderman of the 20th Ward in Chicago. Inspired by his life experiences growing up in a working class, single-parent household, Che “Rhymefest” Smith has carved out a life in art, music and social activism, always using his music career as a platform from which to stimulate social change. For nearly a decade, Che has been professionally writing and producing music and has since expanded not only his craft, but his sense of responsibility for the community that he calls home and for impoverished, underrepresented communities throughout the nation.
Brian E. Sleet was born and raised in the Chatham neighborhood on the Southside of Chicago. He attended Whitney Young Magnet High school and graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Sociology and a Senior Fellowship entitled “The Black Press: The Missing Link in the Quest for a Black Identity.” Mr. Sleet has been a litigator in private practice, worked on national to local political campaigns, worked for the United States Congress and United States Senate. He is also a member of the Advisory Board of Jane Addams Hull House, a staunch supporter of HIV AIDS initiatives and any projects targeted at uplifting our youth.
