Chance The Rapper Links With Lyft To Fund Chicago Public Schools

Chance The Rapper Links With Lyft To Fund Chicago Public Schools

"Through the New Chance Arts & Literature Fund, I'm committed to giving the kids in Chicago as much as I can", Chance said in a press release.

During the video the 24-year-old told viewers: 'Just want ya'll to be here in case it gets out of hand'.

'But policing as a system is disproportionately racist and oppressive, ' he continued.

And though his partnership with Lyft is new, the Grammy victor raps about ride-sharing in his song "All Night", off last year's "Coloring Book" project: "You should use your phone, call a Uber / You a goofy if you think I don't know you need a Lyft".

Budget 2018 To Be Revealed This Afternoon
A new agency, Home Building Finance Ireland, to use Nama's experience and provide cheap loans to developers was announced. There will be no increases in the duty on alcohol, petrol and diesel, although a carbon tax will be discussed next year.

Despite live-streaming the video for safety reasons, Chance reiterated his faith in those "that put on the uniform". He's been a vocal figure in Chicago's local politics and continues to use his platform as a way to speak out against prejudice. Watch the livestream of Chance's encounter with police, below.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Illinois State Police confirmed that Corley was stopped at approximately 1 p.m. on Sunday (Oct. 8) for a moving violation and given a warning.

Chance notes that he has "no gun in the vehicle, no drugs in the auto", and his family is coming back from church. However, the police officer only issued a warning. "Just please stay on until this traffic stop is over".

DNA Info reports Chance is now calling on the city of Chicago to cancel plans for a new $95 million police and fire training academy and donate the money to Chicago Public Schools instead.
