As Chance the Rapper continues to rise to dominance both in music and on the social activism scene, natives of his hometown Chicago are pleading with him to run for mayor. During a recent interview with Ebony magazine, Chance broke hearts when he confirmed that he was not interested. He said that he would never run for any office or government position because he’s simply ‘not into it[. He said that in politics things don’t get done and people hold back on their beliefs because they want to be re-elected. He doesn’t want to get tied into that and thinks that as an artist, he is able to talk about and advocate for the issues that matter.
