Chance the Rapper Announces His Pick for Chicago Mayor

Chance the Rapper speaks at a press conference to announce his endorsement of Toni Preckwinkle for Mayor on Thursday (March 21) at City Hall in Chicago, Ill.

The 25-year-old rapper announced his endorsement for Preckwinkle, but said he does not plan on putting more money into the election campaigns.

“I don’t have any more money for Chicago politics,” he said.

“The resounding voice has been that they don’t necessarily feel comfortable or safe going into a city where Lori Lightfoot sits on the fifth floor,” Chance said about his endorsement (via Chicago Tribune). “Her past record as a prosecutor has not been in the best interests of young black people in Chicago, hasn’t been entirely truthful, and even the campaign and the image she has created since the February election has been, like I just said, very untrue.”
