Raised on the cities Southside, Ajani Jones, knows what it’s like to finally get the opportunities that are too often reserved for more affluent parts of the Chicagoland area. After transferring schools and joining the poetry club the trajectory of Ajani’s life changed dramatically. It was there that his passion for writing was nurtured and his horizons expanded.
In an effort to do the same for students who need it, Ajani has gathered his fellow MCs and Chicagoans Marko Stats, SoloSam, and Musa Reems to throw a free concert & fundraiser for the public. It will be in the South Loop area at 623 S. Wabash, tomorrow (Thursday November 2nd), at 6 30PM. The event is sponsored by Columbia College’s student music club (CMC) and record label (AEMMP Records). All donations raised will go directly to the CPS Children First Fund and will be allocated to music programs for Southside Public Schools.
In an effort to raise all the funds possible a GoFundMe has been created as well for those that cannot make the event.
