Activist, Politician and 2x Grammy award winning artist, Che “Rhymefest” Smith swings by Sway in the Morning and enlightens our studio and listeners with not only his light, but his knowledge.
As his first acting role, Che talks about being casted in Emilo Estevez’s newest impactful film, The Public, a story about an act of civil disobedience that turns into a standoff with police when homeless people in Cincinnati take over the public library to seek shelter from the bitter cold.
A story that didn’t seem so far off from his own story of his father being homeless for 30 years and being reunited with him again at a public library.
While in our studio, he also speaks on his meeting with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to work out their differences from their earlier very public disagreements, even stating, “at the time, I feel like the only language he [Kanye] could understand was negativity.”
The topic of Jussie Smollett also arouse while in-studio. Watch below to see what he had to say. The Public hits theaters on April 5th.
