Chance The Rapper

Chance The Rapper covers the February 2017 issue of GQ magazine. The 23-year-old Chicago native explains why he won’t give in to irrational fears about a Donald Trump presidency:

“My dad’s the man. And I can’t say that enough,” Chance says about his father, Ken Williams-Bennett, who was an aide to former Chicago mayor Harold Washington and also worked for then-Senator Barack Obama.

Chance The Rapper

Chance continued:

“[My father] has always stuck up for people. And he’s also always been a good dude. That’s who I want to be… That’s why I’m not afraid of a Trump presidency. You gotta just understand, like, shit has been f-cked-up, right? Like, ‘Make America Great Again,’ that’s not a real thing because shit ain’t really switched up for them. It’s not really going that bad for you. If you feel like you’re the under-represented, under-appreciated side of Middle America that is white — quote me — you need to, uh, toughen up, nigga! Somebody gotta punch you in the chest, because shit is sweet for you. You know what I’m saying? I would say to everybody, you know, the world is coming together. Like — there’s every day people are becoming more a more, I’m not using this world in terms of emotion, but sensitive to real issues… and aware. I would say the main reason not to be afraid is that I’m making music for your kids now. I’m coming so clean-cut with the message of hope and understanding, and the Word, that it’s like: What could you be fearful of?”

The Weeknd

Musician The Weeknd also covers the February issue of GQ magazine. The 26-year-old Canadian singer embraces comparisons to troubled rapper Kanye West.

The Weeknd tells GQ’s Mark Anthony Green of his musical idol Kanye:

“I don’t think I ever wanted to be like Kanye in personality. I think I definitely want to, have always wanted to, have his boldness or assurance in myself. But I’ve definitely seen Kanye do things where I was like, ‘I’d never do that’ I’ve always been able to defend Kanye… Like when he went onstage with Taylor, I was like… well… Beyoncé kind of deserved that. I’m rationalizing everything that he does, but I can’t say that in the same position I would do the same things… I always wanted to be more a person that people enjoy. Somebody that will make you laugh. I’m talking about just my personality, not necessarily how my music sounds. Because I believe I’m a disrupter like Kanye in a lot of ways.”

The February issue of GQ will be available on newsstands in New York and L.A. on January 17 and nationwide on January 24.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I’ve yet to hear one song from Chance. Shrug.

  • Scromes1212

    So how does that work? You protest against Rahm but he is your dad’s boss? Lol Keep your music brother.

  • Seavoo Play

    Who is this guy? Does he have any songs out?
    I like his navy sweater in the second pic…it is so.fetch…?

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I love me some Chance. His music is dope and he’s dope despite his wardrobe. The children are the future. They give zero fuqs about that orange dude. The world is changing whether the old guard likes it or not.

  • missmiami305

    I love Chance. He exudes joy.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Chance is like the corny cool kid that everybody loves.

  • hi-liter
  • Jen_no_juice

    I’ve never heard any of his songs, but I hear he’s an independent artist. Good luck Chance #ThatsAllIGot

  • Chardonnai

    Ken Williams-Bennett, who was an aide to former Chicago mayor Harold Washington and also worked for then-Senator Barack Obama.
    ———————————————————-
    I didnt know that. That would explain how just got put on the board at the Dusable Museum. I hope does some good. Its a great museum that doesnt get enough attention in Chiago

  • Scromes1212

    Dope rapper. Check out his mixtapes

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Something about The Weeknd just always bothers the hell out of me. I think it’s how his name is spelled ?my petty is showing.

  • Karma WhO

    I get so bothered when someone is a great musician but speaks so unintelligent.
    Especially with his dad being in politics..

  • lovelygamour

    Its the “black rich kids” turn. Its the black “connected” kids turn. In the usa we were kinda the last source of making it on your own. I know its been going on for years but now its really hard to be totally unknown and rise. The last person who wasnt jewish or gay that got to rise based on auditions along was -i believe- hilary swank. Just came to town and killed it. Viola davis came to mind but she was working in nyc. Her agents did right by her but they saw her work.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    You ever seen the kit kat commercial with him in it? He was also responsible for the #sogone challenge.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Not sure about your musical taste but he’s Hip Hop/R&B/Gospel. Beats are dope af. If you’re a music lover he is worth a listen. Kinda Kanye Jr.

  • Chardonnai

    Its true. The young folk arent afraid. Most of them were too little to remember Bush. All they know is Obama and black excellence. We gon be alright. ( iHope)

  • lovelygamour

    Then discloses the info later. They are all related.

  • hi-liter

    I can see Chance the Rapper doing wonderful things in music and in the world. Great young man.

  • Scromes1212

    Exactly lol waits til he gets on then he talks about it smh but he is a dope rapper

  • SunnyChi

    Yessss chance! Such a dope artist!

  • Prettybootnikki

    What songs does chance ? sing ??? I just don’t know off the top of my head. But he’s been in the headlines a lot lately.

  • MissHarlem

    I didn’t read his whole interview so what did he say that was so unintelligent?

  • Capricornicy

    I like the Weeknd music. I only know Chance from the kit-kat commercials.

  • lovelygamour

    Its also important to teach them the past. Cause bush won an election on looks alone.
    There was a recent poll, the results were most under 17 year olds believe like 70% of whats on the INTERNET! Sham.

  • nucynu25

    QTNA

  • Chardonnai

    DAMN.

  • MissHarlem

    I’m genuinely confused

  • nucynu25

    Well said ..

  • Chardonnai

    aide to former Chicago mayor Harold Washington
    ——————————————–
    Reading is fundamental…SMH

    Harold was the first black mayor Chicago. Much bigger influence than Rham could ever be.

  • Chardonnai

    The Carters are FOND of him. He apart of the court.

  • puppylove

    They believe, because their textbooks have lied to them. So they do research on the internet for projects, and weren’t taught that anyone can say anything on the internet with virtually no repercussions.

  • Scromes1212

    I didn’t say anything negative about Harold. What did you read. I’m talked about Rahm

  • nucynu25

    huh.. what are you talking abt ? Intagram & youtube are turning ppl into stars virtually over night

  • Chardonnai

    Rham is NOT his daddy’s boss. Harold was.

  • puppylove

    Rahm was not his dad’s boss.

  • lovelygamour

    The weeknd seems so disguested by black women that most black people dont talk about him. As I move around i’ve noticed that the only black people that talk about him are kids on the internet. Asian and white people watch him but they cant get a convo going. He doesnt get the response they were hoping for. He;s a knock off micheal jackson with a cool musical story but most black people arent going to take the time to go on the journey because he seems to hate black women and possible the men.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    The Weekend reminds me of Lenny Kravitz. I tried to listen to his CD. That was a no for me dog.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    No Problem with Wayne. Nominated for a Grammy too. Coloring Book the album is a masterpiece.

  • Scromes1212

    It does just as much bad as it does good. It took more jobs away then it created.

  • Chardonnai

    He;s a knock off micheal jackson
    ———————————————–
    I wouldnt even give him that. He’s not entertaining at all.

  • klwbaby

    The only song I know is Summer Friends…

  • nucynu25

    i read it 2x to find the dumbness in what he said . Shids he a rapper I dont expect for him to articulate like a lawyer…Ive seen/heard worst.

  • Scromes1212

    He is his dad’s boss lol what are you talking about?

  • nucynu25

    huh.. am not talking abt jobs but stars or putting ppl into the spotlight that we wouldn’t hve known otherwise.

  • Scromes1212

    You know not what you speak lol Rahm is absolutely his dad’s boss. Look it up.

  • Prettybootnikki

    Sing it please ?? I’m lost. Lol

  • Chardonnai

    It was a Hell to the naw for me…

  • Prettybootnikki

    I’m still lost. Find me. Please sing it.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Leave her be she seems slow

  • nucynu25

    I can digg it sometimes but it gets too be depressing.. i get tired of hearing abt falling in love with strippers

  • missmiami305

    I love Lenny. I dont see the comparison between the two

  • Alicia.Ashe

    She seems slow

  • Scromes1212

    I disagree. We had talent before social media and we will have talented people after its gone. In my humble opinion it does way more bad then good.

  • Incog-knee-gress
  • nucynu25

    You want too much .. let google or youtube be your friend.

  • Capricornicy

    Man look…..

  • nucynu25

    Swearr,, when did i say that it created talent ?

  • Prettybootnikki

    I love Lenny too and I don’t see him as a comparison. I do like star boy and that other song tell me you love me. I think that’s the name of it.

  • Chardonnai

    Chicago doesnt have the best educational system.

  • MissHarlem

    First off the fact that I read it once is a shocker. I too had to read that shit twice. Still can’t find it. Votes in point is dumb so we moving on.

  • nucynu25

    I feel like my brain cells are disappearing in this post.

  • klwbaby

    ? I don’t know the lyrics but it’s on YouTube..

  • Scromes1212

    For all that don’t know, his dad works for Rahm in Chicago. Him Rahm, Barak, David Axelrod all been close friends for over 20 years

  • Prettybootnikki

    Thank you!! I hate that song. Lol

  • Scromes1212

    My apologies

  • Prettybootnikki

    Lol !!!

  • nucynu25

    Its cool scromes.

  • Chardonnai

    Awesome.

    I stand corrected.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    ??

  • MissHarlem

    You saved me a font

  • Carolina Blue

  • Capricornicy

    Lenny is so overrated to me. I like American woman & I want to get away.

  • Prettybootnikki

    I just saw the video of u don’t want no problems with him and little Wayne. I hate that song. And he’s not a known artist in my opinion. Lol

  • Carolina Blue

    Im in love with a stripper….well ex.

  • KeyaPrettyNPetty

    Child you KNOW people read what they want to read. Even if you did not type it.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Might not be for everyone, but that song is nominated for a Grammy too.

  • missmiami305

    The weekend has some dope beats. Thats about it. Cannot get into him but he seems very creative

  • nucynu25

    storytime

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Go listen to some jazz. According to @Cricket it makes you smarter

  • Prettybootnikki

    Oh I see.

  • nucynu25

    Next she was going to ask dubb to twerk to one of the songs & then send her ticket to a listening party.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Well he only used to listen to only jazz . I would THINK he would be considered EXTRA smart according to blog logic

  • nucynu25

    lmao .. you know i like ratchett music.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    You know I love everythang baby.

  • Carolina Blue

    ?? aint no story. My baby used to work the pole…back in the 99 and 2000…literally

  • Keesh5000

    Im back from lunch and it was okay…… What yall doing…
    Love Chance the Rapper, love his energy, love his intellectual manners mixed with his age appropriate words and shyt like nigga and I love that he smokes weed. He is so talented. He has a backing to…his family, his Father. I remember seeing him taking a pic with Quincy Jones when he was a baby. I believe it was Quincy Jones…if not it was someone great. So NO he did not grow up SAVAGE

  • Scromes1212

    So you saved her?

  • MissHarlem

    Smacks your hand

  • nucynu25

    Good one Scromey lmao

  • Carolina Blue

    Hmmm

  • Prettybootnikki

    Nawl. I’ll pass. But I would like to see those ratchet chicks in the snow dancing to it.

  • nucynu25

    Did you meet her there ?
    Did you get jealous & make her stop?

  • Torae

    Weeknd looks like a chubby Maxwell…

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    She dropped it down for the 99 and the 2000 like Cash Money?!?!? hahaha

  • nucynu25

    I like you .

  • Incog-knee-gress

    The Weeknd pisses me off with his spelling. His music is not for me. I am HERE for Chano tho.

  • Carolina Blue

    No.

  • Keesh5000

  • Sucker Free

  • Keesh5000

    He does….but he will learn one day…. maybe today.
    Scromes1212..you gonna learn today… what is 12/12 for you?

  • Sucker Free

    He sings really softly and his voice is real smooth and sweet but he says the dirtiest shyt lyric wise…people eat that up

    No comparison to Lenny tho…imo

  • MissHarlem
  • Vonn

    I like some of his music. Glad he got a haircut.

  • Keesh5000

    Why do you think he hates Black Women?

  • Capricornicy

    Me too.

  • Karma WhO

    Doesnt show by this interview..also, alot of jazz is instrumental, not all but alot..that doesn’t help his vocabulary either..just saying

  • MissHarlem

    Actually after its response to me just now carry on. Full throttle too

  • Carolina Blue

    I dont have time for that.

  • Capricornicy

    Me too Blue.

  • Chardonnai

    Cash Money records taking over for the 99 and the 2000.

    Never gets old.

  • Buttercup

    The Weeknd irks me to no end. He’s just a Michael Jackson wannabe.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Snow twerkers?!?!

    Ask and ye shall receive.

    https://youtu.be/bQaBEm_mh5U

  • MissHarlem

    ?? she passed the rose test. I will still roast if silly though. Probation.

  • Lolalao

    That will never happen…

  • Keesh5000

    Whaaaaaa. Chance the Rapper has been putting in work. Coloring Book was awesome. He also had a coloring book day in Chicago that looked like it was off the CHAIN. He gives his music out for free. Dope lyrics and can sing and write. Hes awesome, we just dont know it yet. He’s been to a lot of those parties at the White House too..but seeing his Dads connects now, I see why. I would definitely put him in the top for best new artist

  • Karma WhO

    Call it what you will, dear. Just helping you point out the obvious..

  • kekeb

    They should have let him play Easy E

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Its the “black rich kids” turn. Its the black “connected” kids turn
    ^^^^^^^
    Starting when? Bc Kanye was upper middle class too. And he been out for eons.

  • Carolina Blue

    Do you listen to his music?

  • lovelygamour

    A lot of people who “like, love,respect, whatever else” him dont get it. You seem to know more about him then his “fans”. I like the journey but dislike him and I cant buy any of it.
    Just like kurt cobain said, “they like the pretty songs but they dont know what it means”.

  • Carolina Blue

    Hes dope.

  • MissHarlem

    I pass on him every time

  • Carolina Blue

    At all.

  • MsSincerity

    I got nothing for this post except that I want Chance’s jacket. Bye

  • Buttercup

    *unintelligently.

    Why have folks thrown adverbs to the wayside?

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines
  • Incog-knee-gress

    I be down thumbing The Weeknd like hell on Pandora. They KEEP tryna sneak him IN too. I be like I SED NO. Pushes button REAL hard then at that point

  • Carolina Blue

    Lmao

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    That link below is for you Cap. WATCH IT

  • Chardonnai

    I really dont see the hype. He cant even really sing. We just settle for mediocre shyt right now. What happen to men that could actually SING.

  • Chardonnai

    LMAO. ME TOO! I used up most my skips on him.

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    Do you have a pole in your house?

  • MissHarlem

    Especially when you playing grammar police

  • nucynu25

    Not crazy jealous .. but i dont think i would be cormfortable dating a stripper. Well , i dont like male strippers so that may be it .

  • Carolina Blue

    Honestly, i dont see how. He has way better songs than that.

  • Scromes1212

    Dub know how to twerk!? You learn something new everyday smh

  • Buttercup

    We are >here<

  • Karma WhO

    People hate to admit when you’re right..u kno as well as i do his interview was very unintelligent, but u got it babe, come for me!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I meant physically not musically. The Weekends voice is trash to me…especially live. I have no idea what he’s actually singing about.

  • Buttercup

    No. I’m not a glutton for punishment.

  • Carolina Blue

    Instigator….lol

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The Weeknd is talented as hell. When I first heard his verse on Crew Love I thought he was The Dream. After that I kept hearing his songs and bought Kissland which is still one of his best albums. Since he’s gone commercial his style is a lil different but that boy got talent…

  • Capricornicy

    *goes to watch*

  • Scromes1212

    Ain’t no fun when the rabbit got the gun lol all jokes, no worries Blue.

  • MissHarlem

  • She_ShowOut

    Great write up! Made me youtube Chance and remember the Honorable Mayor Harold Washington RIP. I love the song “No Problem.” Question: Is that Young Thug in the video? I didn’t hear a verse from him…but I did like Lil Wayne’s verse. I doubt they would be filmed in the same room together.

  • Buttercup

    Come for you? You must not know ’bout me? I was just pointing out the irony in your post. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/aa8ee5616f036240193ef65a84599783852b48866762bb7a639120d09d6ec9c5.gif

  • Neia

    This is the cleanest I have seen the Week’nd look.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I can see it now that you mentioned it. He’s small enough to play him and kinda favors him in the face.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Hey Aunt Viv!! Get it get it!!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yes he sure is.

  • lovelygamour

    I know he’s ethiopian. that’s why I give him a pass. This is first time ive bashed him, publicly or even out loud. I think he is 1st or 2nd generation. I know it tough and people want to fit in but his face completely changes in the presence of a black woman. Before he got really famous his “club nights” no blackwomen were alowed in vip. I saw that. Some people say a lot of times blacks werent allowed in on his days period, i can believe that. They say it wasnt him but if you can get in every other night-it makes one wonder.

  • Renee26

    He stilll looks like he needs a bath to me but he looks cute with that cut

  • Renee26

    When it’s time to get down I turn on The Weekend radio

  • cherrypie

    I don’t know why but it seems like Chance’s head is HUGE!!!!

  • LibraGirlonly

    I want to ask his daddy what’s going on in Chicago and why aren’t they doing anything about it?

  • lovelygamour

    Kanye really got put on by bronfman. The reason was he liked his stuff. Kanye had to prove himself. He created for others first. He knows his craft.
    A lot of the newbies havent proven nothing. Their mixed tapes are professionally made, they get a write up in their first year, and they can pay for a club night. They can work for free for months on end.
    A lot of publications/producers are cash strapped. So they put people on who can afford to prime the pump.
    My critique is they are killing the entertainment industry by miscasting everyone. Black entertainmet did a good job of hiring people with some sort of value. Actors, singers, rappers when is the last time you watched a show/movie where everyone made sense?

    What in the entire F…..

  • MsPam

    These ishes love sharing the man. Bella, GiGi, Sophia, Taylor on and on might as well pull their dirty underwear out the hamper and put them on. Ugh ?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I HATE how he spells his name, too. Irks me.

    The weeknd/abel has been around for awhile. Its no secret he doesnt associate with black women. His whole aura changes. The last black girl that he featured was in a early early video before he got on. Other than that there are incidents that blackwomen couldnt get into the club when he was there. Its not just one glance. Its hearing about him for years and years. Now that they are pushing him he took a pic with n. Campbell and did a song with nicki. But when a black star was infront of him at one of the award shows a look of disguest was etched on his face. He has had that same look for years.

    I cant think of a song that Chance The Rapper made and Im a hip hop head lol but he’s hot right now huh? Ok, thats all I got congrats on cover. Reminds me of Rita Ora, see her everywhere but what songs does she sing lol.

  • Brook York

    I love those covers, The Weeknd looks good.

  • lovelygamour

    What type of “stars” and its the public giving them visibilty. Then after proving it will sustain they are giving a chance. Basically a 3 part audition. I’m talking about you get on a greyhound with $300 dollars in your pocket and go to hollywood. You go to 50 auditions in a day and you get a starring role in a tv show. When is the last time you’ve heard that story? I just dont see a lot of oppurtunity for regular people.
    I work in casting. Lol.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Lol!!!

  • Low E. TUH!

    SCROMES…STOP RILING THESE FOLKS UP BEFORE I PULL UP! LMAO

  • Neia

    Agreed!

  • Hugga Bunch

    I’m still mad at Sisqo for singing about thongs. Straight dismissed his career!

  • Hugga Bunch

    I promise I thought it was Maxwell at first.

  • lovelygamour

    What i”m talking about is opportunity. If you dont believe me type in actors union work for free. People are trying to get on so they are working for free. But they havent caught on that most of the people being pushed are someone neice/cousin. In black entertainment you would find more variety. You could audition your way in or prove your worth. They didnt just hand out roles or concert/studio time. Now you need to come with a finished product from a ghostwriter, pay for showcases, pay for your own merch, and your childhood best friend dad will book you.
    Thats what I mean by rich kids. They get a huge push as oppose to showing they deserve a push.

  • lovelygamour

    Wikipedia. When I was in school wikipedia was the devil. Now its fact. **Somebody gave bill o’reily(sp) (fox news) wife an entry. Her job was listed as “professional victim”. Ha ha ha.++

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I also wondered, and wrote it off as giving himself street cred, a rapper’s persona? He studied music, or was self-taught, probably attended great schools, even if he went to public school, his family was on the Black Tie set before he was born, so I didn’t get it either (kinda distracting, too), unless he’s dyslexic or has of some type of impairment OR A STYLE OF LANGUAGE he purposefully created, idk! But, he is VERY TALENTED!

  • Dr.Rue

    Chance is a singer?? I’m asking…thought he was a rapper lol.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines
