    Common announces AAHH! Fest for September, Dave Chappelle slated to host
    Common announced the first AAHH! Fest on Wednesday, a collaboration between the legendary Chicago rapper via his Common Ground Foundation and Donda's House, Inc. (a foundation founded by Kanye West and Che "Rhymefest" Smith named after West's later mother that provides premium arts instruction to youth.) The event will take place Sept. 21st in Union Park, and comes after an initiative Common announced in April that would lead to the creation of 20,000 jobs for underprivledged Chicago youth.
