Chief Keef and the 808s

In July, 2011, the young men, all from the North of Howard area, decided that neighborhood kids had nothing to do, and they organized a dance group whose purpose was to teach dance, and instill in the youth a whole bunch of good values that come from delivering performances. Last August, with only a month’s worth of practice (all conducted, choreographed and created by the young men), the novice dance group, called “808s: Youth Empowerment thru Dance” performed at the Willye B.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
