(AllHipHop News) Yesterday, Chance The Rapper felt the need to insert himself into the mess around Kanye West
trolling tweeting about Donald Trump. Ye had the internet talking after he posted a photo of himself in a "Make America Great Again" hat and for accusing former President Barack Obama of not doing enough to help Chicago.
This led to Hot 97 personality Ebro Darden to tweet, "I wonder if [Kanye West] has caught up with [Chance The Rapper,] [G Herbo,] [Lil Durk] on his hometown of Chicago??" Chance responded by writing, "Talked to him two days ago. He’s in a great space and not affected by folk tryna question his mental or physical health. Same Ye from the Vmas, same Ye from the telethon.
The last portion of Chano's tweet had many of his followers questioning how he could honestly say Kanye West has not changed since the infamous incidents at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and the Hurricane Katrina relief telethon in 2005. Chance then reacted to the online noise by later tweeting, "Black people don’t have to be democrats."
That tweet was quickly retweeted by right-wing figures, such as Donald Trump Jr and Candace Owens, which led to even more backlash directed at Chance. The Coloring Book creator finally ended his night on Twitter by posting a GIF of Jay-Z, symbolizing the need to exit the conversation.
