Chance The Rapper On Making Awesome Music: "I Have To Listen To God"

Chance the Rapper is a multi-award winning hip hop artist who is becoming increasingly outspoken about his Christian faith. He performed Chris Tomlin's classic worship song 'How Great is Our God' at the Grammy Awards, and has spoken at length about how Jesus has changed his life. 

Now, he has revealed how God gives Chance direction in his creative process, speaking to Ebony magazine. “There are a lot of spaces where you feel like God isn’t around,” Chance says of the L.A. Music scene. “I got some vibes. You have to listen and be aware of your discernment, and if somebody tells you to leave? Then get out of there. You’ll feel it … . You just have to listen to God.”

So, with so  much Christian support for his music and message, would he ever enter into politics? “I would never run for any office or government position,” he says plainly after cracking a smile. “I’m not into it. I think politics is a reason why a lot of stuff doesn’t get done. There’s a lot of favors, and a lot of people are held back by their intentions of being re-elected or the things that they owe their party or constituents. I think when you’re in my position as an artist, I can say what I want and talk about the issues that matter.”
