“They screamin,’ ‘Chano for mayor,’ I’m thinkin’ maybe I should.”
A group of Chance the Rapper fans in Chicago are trying to bring the rapper’s “Somewhere in Paradise” lyrics to fruition by urging Chano to run for mayor.
The #Chano4Mayor campaign website, launched on April 1, was created by a group of young people in the city, including 23-year-old game designer Bea Malsky.
Malsky told the Chicago Sun-Times that they’d love to see the rapper run against incumbent Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who is slated to compete for the seat again in 2019. The rapper has earned an admirable reputation for his political activism and philanthropy, including a recent million-dollar donation to the Chicago Public Schools system.
The website cites a dissatisfaction with the way Emanuel has governed the city, specifically in terms of its public schools.
