Should Chance the Rapper add Mayor to his long list of accolades? According to folks on the Internet, absolutely.

A campaign was launched earlier this week, gunning for the Chicago rapper to run against Rahm Emanuel for Mayor of Chicago in 2019.

According to chano4mayor.com, over Emanuel’s near two terms in office, the city has seen “the closure of 50 public schools, the largest in history” and the closing of “6 of its 12 mental health clinics.” So now, it’s time for the ultimate change.

The website goes on to ask who should step in to save the city. And whelp, Chance was the man on top. “We love your music—we’ve been following your career from the first 10 days. We also love the work you’ve done to give back to the city that raised you. You represent Chicago on the world stage, and you do us proud,” reads a message on the website.

“We think if you ran, you would win. And if you won, you would do a good ass job,” the message adds. “You’re already making change in our city: your work supplying coats for people experiencing homelessness, your long-running Open Mike for high school students, and your million dollar donation to CPS all demonstrate a commitment to empowering Chicago’s marginalized populations. You’d send a message that Chicago is ready for a new generation of leadership.”

Meanwhile, folks on social media are flooding timelines in support of the hopeful politician.

The campaign flow comes weeks after the Chicago rapper donated $1 million to Chicago public schools in Chicago. The 23-year-old announced last month that, “While I’m frustrated and disappointed in the governor’s inaction, that will not stop me from doing all I can to support Chicago’s most valuable resource: its children three blocks from where I was raised.”
