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.”

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
