Chance The Rapper Rejects Trump's "Thanks" And Apologizes For Kanye Support


Chance explains why he went on record and supported Kanye West.

(AllHipHop News) Chance The Rapper has backpedaled his support of Kanye West after Donald Trump used the Chicago artist's political statement as propaganda.

Donald Trump, who West referred to as his "brother," began praising both men for their commentary, that seemed to support a conservative agenda.

"Kanye West has performed a great service to the Black Community - Big things are happening and eyes are being opened for the first time in Decades - Legacy Stuff! Thank you also to Chance and Dr. Darrell Scott, they really get it (lowest Black & Hispanic unemployment in history)," Trump tweeted Friday.

Chance was facing backlash after he appeared to support his "family." He tweeted, "Black people don't have to be democrats" after West was seen wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat.

Chance has since apologized for the reactionary act.

"I'd never support anyone who has made a career out of hatred, racism and discrimination," Chance said on Twitter.

Neither Trump or his bro have commented.
