    Local Grammy Award-winning rapper Che "Rhymefest" Smith (L) and incumbent Ald. Willie Cochran (R).

    Local Grammy Award-winning rapper Che "Rhymefest" Smith said Friday that he won't call for a recount in his aldermanic race with incumbent Willie Cochran.

    Following Tuesday's election, Smith currently sits 336 votes behind Cochran.

    The campaign said it'll release a report next week about "some of the election irregularities that occurred in the 20th Ward."

    Cochran has already claimed victory in the race.
