Che “Rhymefest” Smith was a guest on the World Music Foundation podcast. In addition to a comprehensive look at the veteran MC’s career, ‘Fest shared a new song called “O.G. Philosophy” featuring Black Thought and R&B veteran Raheem DeVaughn.
For episode 17 of the non-profit podcast dedicated to opening minds through music, the Chicago, Illinois MC was a guest to discuss Hip-Hop, his upcoming Hollywood credits, his hometown’s youth, and shared a sneak peek at a song from his collaborative project with The Roots front-man and Raheem.
Love has been at the center of Rhymefest’s creative journey since publicly falling out with Kanye West over the condition of Donda’s House, a community and arts non-profit named after West’s late mother. The two icons who penned “Jesus Walks” have since made up, and ‘Fest has kept himself busy with music (M3 with DJ Jazzy Jeff), life-changing trips (Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong), and movies (as “Big George” in Emilio Estevez’s The Public).
