Che “Rhymefest” Smith has accomplished quite a bit while working with some of the biggest names in hip hop. He has a Grammy, a Golden Globe, and an Oscar. And, as an activist, he’s worked hard to give back by getting involved with young people here in his hometown of Chicago.
But his latest project is deeply personal, involving a man that has been missing from Smith’s life for 25 years: his dad. The new documentary “In My Father’s House” follows Smith as he moves his family into the South-side home his father grew up in, and his quest to fill emotional holes for himself, and others who didn’t grow up with a father. Rhymefest joins us to talk about the film and the journey.
