Chance the Rapper, who said in June he would be supporting the Democratic presidential nominee, has reaffirmed his support for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election and chided the media's treatment of her.
When prompted about his choice in November for Billboard's new Grammy Preview issue, Chance said it was "Hillary Clinton, by far," pointing to her Chicago roots, which he shares, noting: "I would hope that she’d be engaged in our city’s current troubles and needs. She has a certain sincerity that’s hidden by the media."
He went on to say he's "not sure if it’s because she’s a woman or because Donald Trump just has a stronghold on the media at this time, but she’s unfairly treated," he lamented. "I can’t really speak on her policies but I feel a certain connection to Hillary Clinton that’s just not there with Donald Trump."
Chance is hardly the only musician backing Clinton in her bid for the White House. Pusha T will be campaigning with her this month, while Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and Katy Perry have performed at previous events for the former Secretary of State. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monáe and Justin Timberlake are also among those who have expressed publicly their intention to vote for Clinton.
