On Wednesday (Nov. 8), Chance the Rapper addressed the Chicago City Council in regards to a proposed plan suggesting the city build a $95 million police academy in Garfield Park.
Donning his signature Chance 3 hat, the "Blessings" MC issued a fistful of barbs towards Mayor Rahm Emanuel after he left the chambers, leaving the Chicago rapper dumbfounded by his escape. “I guess the mayor had to step out when I came up. But it’s cool. It’s cool. It’s cool because I’m here to talk to you,” he said.
Then, Chano gleaned over some of the pressing issues plaguing the city, mainly its impotence in the field of education. “I’ve been asking for money for over a year now to fund these classrooms and, on the 4th of July weekend, they announced in like a cool financing way that ... they’re proposing to build a $95 million cop academy," he explained to the aldermen in the room.
