We already know Chicago is still going through some things when it comes to youth violence and unemployment in the city. In January, a report detailed the depressing landscape for young, black males in the work force with 92 percent joblessness.To remedy the problem the Urban League partnered with rapper and Chicago native Common and songwriter Che “Rhymefest” Smith to create 1,000 year-round jobs for teens. The music festival will raise funds for youth programs supported by Common’s Common Ground Foundation, and rapper Kanye West’s charity Donda’s House run by Rhymefest and his wife.
