Looking back across the past several months, things have looked nothing but great for Chance The Rapper. Releasing his latest body of work, Coloring Book, launching a successful tour, and recently scoring a handful of Grammy nominations, Chance The Rapper is surely one of the music industry’s winning artist at the moment.

Taking some time out of his busy schedule, Chance The Rapper went into model mode as the rapper is the latest cover star for GQ Magazine. Sitting down for an interview, Chance answers a series of questions that dive into everything from the most expensive thing he purchased, to Trump’s upcoming presidency.

How are you not afraid of a Trump presidency? Help us feel better.

You gotta just understand, like, shit has been fucked-up, right? Like, “Make America Great Again,” that’s not a real thing because shit ain’t really switched up for them. It’s not really going that bad for you. If you feel like you’re the under-represented, under-appreciated side of Middle America that is white—quote me—you need to, uh, toughen up, nigga! Somebody gotta punch you in the chest, because shit is sweet for you. You know what I’m saying? I would say to everybody, you know, the world is coming together. Like there’s—every day people are becoming more and more, I’m not using this word in terms of emotion, but sensitive to real issues and—

And aware.

Yeah. And aware. That’s really what I mean. People are raising their kids to be more and more knowledgeable and understanding. I would say the main reason not to be afraid is that I’m making music for your kids now. I’m coming so clean-cut with the message of hope and understanding, and the Word, that it’s like: What could you be fearful of?

Charming and clever as ever, Chance’s likability is potentially his biggest asset among today’s Hip-Hop class. Because of that, we can only hope for more wins for him in 2017. Check out the full interview and cover spread for GQ Magazine, here.
