Chance The Rapper Endorses Hillary Clinton For President

Written by Dragan Stefanov

Chance The Rapper has officially expressed his support for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

One may think that this should not come as a surprise, given Republican candidate Donald Trump’s opinions on minority groups. However, Chance’s choice does not lie as much with politics as it does with Clinton being a Chicago native, like him:

Not to sound selfish, but she’s from Chicago, so I would hope that she’d be engaged in our city’s current troubles and needs” he said.

Chancellor Bennett, the rapper’s real name, applauded the Democratic candidate’s character, arguing that she has a frankness that has been ignored by the media:

She has a certain sincerity that’s hidden by the media. I’m not sure if it’s because she’s a woman or because Donald Trump just has a stronghold on the media at this time, but she’s unfairly treated. I can’t really speak on her policies but I feel a certain connection to Hillary Clinton that’s just not there with Donald Trump.

Chance is one of the many rappers who have expressed their support, including Ty Dolla $ign and YG.

Hillary Clinton thanked Chance on Twitter.
