Chance the ACTIVIST, Chance the DAD, Chance for PRESIDENT, @chancetherapper is taking over our #BlackMusicIssue. “This is God’s year. You know, every year is God’s year, but this is a moment of awakening for a lot of people. I’ve just seen a lot of stuff in my own life that has pushed me toward being closer to God and closer to my faith, and it has materialized into success.” – Chance.

“I would never run for any office or government position,” he said. “I’m not into it. I think politics is a reason why a lot of stuff doesn’t get done. There’s a lot of favors, and a lot of people are held back by their intentions of being re-elected or the things that they owe their party or constituents.”
Chance thinks the voice he has as an artist is just as important. “I think when you’re in my position as an artist, I can say what I want and talk about the issues that matter,” he added.
