Chance The Rapper Releases New Music and Makes Shocking Claim

radiofacts.com

Chance the Rapper released a set of four new songs overnight, one of which contained a lyrical surprise. The artist has purchased his hometown’s Chicagoist news website, which was shut down last fall when its owner took it offline after its staff voted to join the Writers Guild of America union. The rights to Chicagoist and its sister sites were later picked up by public radio stations. Chance acquired Chicagoist from WNYC. In the track “I Might Need Security,” Chance raps, “I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist bitches outta business.”

In a statement today, Chance said, “I’m extremely excited to be continuing the work of the Chicagoist, an integral local platform for Chicago news, events, and entertainment … I look forward to relaunching it and bringing the people of Chicago an independent media outlet focused on amplifying diverse voices and content.”
