Most people are fans of Chance The Rapper. He never gets into any beef, he serves his city of Chicago, he makes music you can listen to with your parents, and seems like a good family man. But yesterday he felt all of Twitters wrath when he brought the conversation up about why we should trust Kanye West 2020, his thoughts on a two party system, and so much more.

Like we said, most people are fans of the guy, so the Twitter snap back wasn’t as harsh as we’ve seen in other instances, but he definitely learned plenty from the likes of artists, writers, and fans about what he was saying about Kanye’s presidential potential was so far off base. Usually for Who’s Cappin it would include Donald Trump or Kanye West, but this time Lore’l had to call CAP on Chance’s political takes.

If you are going to speak out, try to do your homework. Read about it. Talk to activists and organizers and people impacted. Be open to evolution and changing your mind. Be intentional and strategic. And think about the impact of your words on the real lives of real people— John Legend (@johnlegend) July 13, 2020

That Chance tweet is an example of a larger problem, which is viewing the presidency as a vessel for your hopes and dreams rather than as a job that requires particular skills/talents/temperament/knowledge to do well— Adam Serwer 🍝 (@AdamSerwer) July 13, 2020

because we should not have to teach a millionaire the ins and outs of presidency just because he decided he wanted to run. Can you give me one solid platform he has? One thing he’s actively looking to improve that he can only do so as president? or does he just want to?— kim 🍙 (@kimlesno) July 13, 2020

My question is really, why is Kanye doing this? He admittedly has never voted and has no experience in policymaking. I question his motivation and intentions, and if this is for the people or for Kanye. He is very stubborn, that's a trait that has made for great music and art.— Alexander Fruchter (@DJ_RTC) July 13, 2020

I finally got the answer now. I understand. Yall trust Biden more than yall trust Ye. I think I understand why, I just don’t feel the same way.— Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) July 13, 2020

It's not just trust (even though that's definitely part of it - how can we trust someone's judgment if he endorsed Trump?). It's a lack of qualifications. Kanye has no extended experience in government, local or otherwise. We gotta stop endorsing celebs just because we like them— William E. Ketchum III (@WEKetchum) July 13, 2020

I'll tell you one thing, Chance's idiotic tweets aren't moving votes.— Ahmed Baba (@AhmedBaba_) July 13, 2020
This year has sparked a political awakening not seen since the 1960s. COVID-19 highlighted the need for competent leadership and the BLM protests mobilized a new generation.
The youth knows what's at stake.

Love to you, my brother. Let's keep fighting for all of this. Presidential politics is very unsatisfying when you're trying to push for radical change and they're trying to put together a majority coalition. Either way, let's keep fighting for it.— John Legend (@johnlegend) July 13, 2020
