Watch: Chance the Rapper announces endorsement for Chicago mayoral election

Chicago, Ill. (WGN) – Chance the Rapper has endorsed a mayoral candidate in the Chicago race.

He is supporting Amara Enyia for mayor, he said in a press conference Tuesday morning.

Rumors previously swirled that Chance the Rapper was going to run himself but dodged WGN’s questions about entering the Chicago mayoral race.

The premiere for Chance’s pizza delivery horror movie “Slice” was held at Chicago’s Arclight Theater, and WGN Entertainment Critic Dean Richards was there to chat with Chance before it was shown.

When Dean asked Chance about the possibility of running for mayor, Chance suggested that they keep their conversation about the movie “Slice.”

When Dean pressed him again for an answer, he said “no comment” and was moved along by his PR person.
