Chicago rapper Chief Keef is looking to transcend his musical career by entering politics. The rapper took to social media to announce his candidacy after current mayor Rahm Emanuel blocked the rapper from hosting a stop the violence benefit concert in the city.

Keef wanted to perform by hologram because there’s an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Chi-town on charges related to child support. How he plans on running a campaign in a city where he’s a wanted man is beyond us. Regardless, Keef urged his Twitter followers to call Rahm’s office to deliver this message:

A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”

SIDE NOTE: That was also the argument when E! News host, Catt Sadler stepped down due to making less than Jason Kennedy. At the time, the network claimed Jason had other duties, which also included his contributions to the Today show.

Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
