Adding to all the good music coming down this year, Chance the Rapper debuted a new song that features Daniel Caesar on Monday’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The untitled song talks about Chance’s evolution from hometown talent to international super star.
“I think my little cousins they want their cousin back/The automatic quarterback that doesn’t rap,” he says in the song.
This year alone, the 24-year-old has done charity concerts, was the grand marshal in a historic parade, was made a ‘most influential person by Time Magazine, donated $1 million and raised over $2.2 million dollars for Chicago Public schools.
When asked by host Stephen Colbert about potentially running for office, the talent made a distinction between civil service and politics. He talked about this last month in a radio interview.
”I just have a larger platform than all politicians,” he told the NPR podcast What’s Good with Stretch & Bobbito.
”I have a bigger voice than Donald Trump, you know what I’m saying? Than literally anybody that works in politics. So yes I can connect with people on a level of appealing as a person who is a citizen, who still does, you know, what he wants.“
Caesar’s album Freudian dropped in August and had features from Kali Uchis, H.E.R. and Charlotte Day Wilson.
