Kanye West's meeting with Donald Trump today was the first step towards a big long term goal the rapper has for his hometown of Chicago.
For years Chi-town has been plagued by violence. Most of it due to warring gang factions. The city currently sits atop the U.S. murder rate for 2016 with 757 fatalities, and we're still a couple of weeks away from 2017.
Although the topic wasn't broached during their 15-minute sit down atTrump Tower, sources close to West told TMZ he wanted to get on the president-elect's "radar" and eventually work with him to bring peace to Chicago.
