Tampa Bay, in other parts of the country; street crime and violence is at a record HIGH! Kanye West asserted his street toughness during his interview with Jimmy Kimmel when he said, "Never think that I'm not from Chicago for one second," and fellow Chi-Town native Common agrees that the city can be a dangerous place.
TMZ recently caught up with the "Hell On Wheels" star out in NYC and asked him about Yeezy's comments, and he told the gossip site that Chicago's violent reputation shouldn't be a point of pride, but is something that desperately needs to change.
"You see what's going on with the young people right now, there's a lot of death and violence going on in Chicago ... but we're gonna make change."
