Rhymefest skydives with Golden Knights at Chicago Air & Water Show

CHICAGO — Chicago hip hop artist Che Smith, better known as Rhymefest, glided from the sky high above North Avenue Beach on Saturday, landing perfectly in the sand as part of a tandem jump with the U.S. Army Golden Knights to kick off the 60th annual Chicago Air & Water Show.

He said the experience was a whole new form of living and that he wanted to use the jump as a way to inspire Chicago's children and young adults.

Rhymefest brought his whole family to watch the jump — including his grandmother, who is the widow of a Vietnam War veteran.
