Chance the Rapper is coming to the defense of protesters across the nation.
The Chicago MC took to Twitter on Saturday (May 30) to address protests in Los Angeles, New York, San Jose, Atlanta and Washington, D.C., where citizens are flooding the streets over the death of unarmed black man George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.
"If you hold a pen at a publication, this is the time be carefully intent with your words. Do not demonize the people that are being beat and battered in the streets," Chance wrote. "Damaging property is not violent. But the actions of the state have been. It must be documented justly."
