Chance The Rapper appears in a new interview with Yahoo’s Katie Couric, where the two sat down at the infamous Chicago foodie institution, Harold’s Chicken Shack to talk music, life and politics. During their discussion, they touched on his ties with the Obama family, his Grammy victories, Dave Chapelle, Kanye, Trump and more. He also emphasized the importance of him staying in Chicago even after all his success:
“I feel a certain beauty to Chicago, to my family that lives here, to people I grew up with that live here, to people I don’t know that live here. I’m a plant. If you uproot a plant and put that somewhere else, it’s not going to grow the same. So, this is where I’m supposed to be and where I’m supposed to grow.”
Check out the full interview above and stay tuned later today when he meets with Illinois governor Bruce Rauner.
