Chance The Rapper Livestreams Chicago Police Stop 'Just In Case It Gets Out Of Hand'
Chance The Rapper live-streamed a traffic stop he was involved in this past Sunday.
Chance, along with his daughter and her mother, Kirsten Corley, was pulled over by a Chicago police officer after driving home from church. The video, which was shared by Chance through his Instagram account, begins with Corley saying “We have no records,” to which Chance adds “We have no record, no burners, my baby…she’s knocked out.”
“Just want y’all to be here in case it gets out of hand,” Chance says to the camera. “Should be good though. Should be straight.”
“Shout out to World Star who’s just tuning in, cause y’all can definitely help me if it goes sideways,” Chance continues before saying “Big faith in the men and women who wear the uniform, but policing as a system is disproportionately racist and oppressive.”
After the officer seems to give Corley a warning, both her and Chance thank the officer.
“See? I knew he was a good dude,” Chance says. “I don’t have any problem with the men and women that are brave enough to put on the badge. But as a system, policing is racist and oppressive.”
In a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, the Illinois State Police confirmed that Corley was stopped about 1 p.m. Sunday for a moving violation and was issued a warning.
