Morning Shift: October 2, 2015

The Chicago hip hop artist Rhymefest has many things: fame, respect and a Grammy for his work writing songs for some of the biggest names in music. But as a kid growing up on the south side, he didn’t have a dad. Che “Rhymefest” Smith talks about reuniting with his father. That emotional quest is chronicled in a new documentary. Then, the Chicago Biennial kicks off this weekend. It’s a celebration and exploration of architecture. Plus two students at the U of I in Urbana-Champaign are broadcasting Illini football games in Mandarin Chinese. And we talk about a new festival to celebrate Filipino culture and food.
