RhymefestRapper Che “Rhymefest” Smith was defeated in his run for alderman of Chicago’s 20th ward. Rhymefest got 46% of the votes, but ultimately lost to incumbent Willie Cochran.

Though Rhymefest did get a very respectable amount of votes, he is alleging massive voter fraud, and refused to concede the election to Cochran.

“We want to ensure that it’s fair and that every vote is counted, and that people who didn’t live in the ward of vacant lots weren’t people who were voting. We want to make sure that the 20th Ward voices are heard,” Rhymefest said after Cochran was declared the winner. “We concede nothing.”
