Chance the Rapper Donates 1 Million Dollars to Chicago Public Schools

Fresh off his win for Best New Artist at the Grammy’s. Chance the Rapper is proving that his music may be just as big as his heart. The rapper recently announced at a Press Conference at Westcott Elementary School that he will be donating one million dollars to Chicago’s public schools. He expressed at the conference that,

“Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positions.”

The press conference came after the rapper shared a meeting with Governor Bruce Rauner where they discussed “important issues” that have been plaguing both the city of Chicago as well as Illinois as a whole. The rapper seemed less than happy with the meeting with the Governor. At the press conference the rapper went on to recall his meeting with the governor and how he gave very vague answers to important questions concerning the future of the city and state. The rapper went on to shout “Governor Rauner, do your job!” Before the conference wrapped up.
