Chicago was a proud mother this past week, as her two son's Common and Kanye West took to the stage at Com's AAHH Fest (hosted by the one and only Dave Chappelle) to close a triumphant day in the city's history. After debuting a remix of his too tuff for words Nobody's Smiling lead-off "Kingdom" with none other than Jay Electronica and Vince Staples, Ye strutted out in his oversized flannel to put the cherry on top of a day full of community engagement and job-skill building in his hometown. Rantless and brimming with energy, Ye delivered the goods without subjecting anyone to his madness. Well done Mr. West, well done. Watch the star-studded AAHH Fest unfold at Chicago's Union Park below.
