Chance the Rapper Gets Dragged After He Tells People To Vote For Whoever Their Mom Is Voting For
Chance the Rapper has always been a little questionable when it comes to politics. He seems to align with Kanye West’s way of thinking, which means he’s often fighting the urge to put on that MAGA hat.
On Tuesday, the rapper went on his Twitter account to tell his fans to vote for whoever their mama is voting for.
And ion care what somebody quoted over my shit. Ya mama been thru alot. Ask them and trust them— Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) September 22, 2020
Of course, people had a problem with this advice. A lot of people have conservative parents. The older you get (in general) the less likely you are to support big changes. You get comfortable with the way things have been, so honestly, this advice don’t make no damn sense.
I might ask my mom for marriage advice. I might ask my mom how to make that vegetable soup she was always making. I might ask my mom how she managed to take care of three kids by herself. I might ask my mom if I should take this new job. I might ask my mom a lot of sh*t, but I don’t give a f**k who she’s voting for.
Several people responded to Chance on Twitter…
Nah, we should be encouraging people to read up on candidates & issues and make their own decisions. If we vote the same way our parents did/ do, we get the same things they get/ have gotten.— An Account About Hip Hop (@checktherhyme1) September 22, 2020
I don't know about you, but my parents want better for me.
Do research, educate yourself, vote for a candidates that most closely aligns with what you believe. I said MOST closely, don’t forget politicians are politicians and until we break and rebuild the system, this is what we got.— Abie Spangler (@AbieJSpangler) September 22, 2020
I had to convince my mom to vote for anyone but trump in the 2016 primary. i’m not asking her opinion on this one lmfao— bad boy (@badboychadhoy) September 22, 2020
OR… educate your parents on what is needed for future generations to exist in a world that is being depleted of its natural resources and POC are being treated like shit across the country. then help them vote for the party that will do it’s best to aid in what’s needed— jay (@userjaymes) September 22, 2020
This advice does not apply if you are white— dead (@ssbpasto) September 22, 2020
What did Chance have to say about all this? Not much. He just kept saying, “But I’m talking about YOUR mom!”
Your mom specifically?— Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) September 22, 2020
How tf does that reply even make sense? What if he says, “Yeah, my mom.” then by Chance’s logic, this dude should vote for Trump. It’s that simple, right?
