Chicago artist Chance the Rapper says he has more influence and a bigger platform than “all politicians,” including President Donald Trump.
“I just have a larger platform than all politicians. I have a bigger voice than Donald Trump, you know what I’m saying?” the rapper said in an interview on NPR’s What’s Good With Stretch and Bobbito podcast, released Wednesday.
An outspoken supporter of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Chance has used his rap star status to effect political change in his native Chicago.
“And so, yes, I can connect with people on a level of appealing as a person who’s still a citizen, who still does, you know, what he wants,” he said.
