ST.LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A comedian and rapper from Chicago, Illinois made a pit stop in Saint Louis during his walking journey to Compton, California. 

Kirk Sells or "White Chedda" his rap name, is putting in all the miles for his students. You see he also teaches an after school rap program for kids. He says high crime communities, like Compton, need after school programs, not only to teach kids about art, but also to keep them safe.

"There's no reason that poverty, gang violence, drug abuse should be occurring in these communities when there's so many of us that are enjoying comfort and affluence in this country. Lets start making it so everybody has these same opportunities and can live a good life," he says. 

Sells is documenting his entire journey on Facebook. You can check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/whitechedda/

He hopes to make it to the golden state within 100 days.
