• Monday was a very monumental day for Chicago as the first annual ‘Aahh! Fest’ took place in Union Park Chicago, Illinois. This event was designed and put together by rapper/actor/poet Common with the help of Kanye West’s nonprofit Donda House. This event gathered some of the largest artist to originate from Chi-town and gathered them all on one huge stage. Hosted by funny man Dave Chappelle, this festival consisted of many great talents that call Chi-Town home including Jennifer Hudson, Lupe Fiasco, Rhymefest, and many more. The buzz reached across all of Chicago and supporters from other states came to show support like Rev. Run and Diggy Simmons. The goal behind this event was to raise funds for many Chicago based foundations, help show the support of the community to stop violence and to showcase the talent that Chicago steadily produces. All of these goals were meet as several hundred music fans came out to enjoy in the festivities.
