Chicago's Chance the Rapper meets with Governor Rauner

April AlvarezMar 04, 2017

Chance said he asked specially "about funding [Chicago Public Schools] with that $215 million that was discussed in May of past year, and was vetoed in December".

Chance acknowledged Rauner had taken his personal number but said the governor gave him "vague answers" on the funding issue. The governor said that while it's obvious Chance is "very focused on getting quickly more money for CPS right now, and I share his passion", he would need a little more time to work out funding shortfalls with the artist.

ADPH investigating 3 student cases of mumps at the University of Alabama
The Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League have confirmed that about a half-dozen players and a coach have the mumps. In the United States, 2016 saw the largest number of mumps cases in the past 10 years.

Chance said that it went differently from how "it should have". So we'll see what happens. The lil' Grammy Award victor from the 79th centered his conversation around the $215 million that had been earmarked for the Chicago Public Schools.

"Unless the Governor restores his $215 million cut, we face even more painful choices before the year is done", a CPS statement said at the time of the lawsuit's filing last week. "He asked me where the $215 million was going to come from". Like, seriously, all the publications you work for and the worldwide, national publications out there-Complex, Billboard-people that post about me walking down the street and shit. "We talked, for a second it sounded like there might be something happening next week". Rauner later confessed that his move was a reaction to a statement from Senate president John Cullerton about proposed pension reform.

Ending epic wait, Lorde returns with dance track
Now at 20, Lorde said her new songs reflect her own emerging adulthood and dealing with her first big heartbreak. Let it all the way out, girl; we're ready for it - and need to hear it just as badly.

The artist later tweeted that he did not want Friday's meeting to be interpreted as a loss. "I said how about if we work all weekend together", said Rauner. The meeting came about as a result of a congratulatory tweet from Gov. Rauner after Chance won three Grammys earlier this month.

Chance responded on Twitter asking if the two could meet.

Originally scheduled for Wednesday (March 1), the meeting was rescheduled due to severe storms in southern IL. Cameras caught up with Chance after his meeting and he looked devastated to say the least. "Please don't let that become the narrative".
