Today, Chicago hip hop was really on one, and more than usual. It started, this morning, with Kanye West throwing his support to the controversial President, calling him his “brother.” Later, Kanye tweeted a pic of him wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Chance The Rapper was very active, during the elections. He walked people to the polls, to vote, and even held a meeting with Illinois’ governor. Leaving that meeting, Chance The Rapper dismissed his state’s governor, a Republican.

The current political climate has apolitical rapper, Lupe Fiasco, urging people to vote, and he’s a Democrat, now. Meanwhile, Chance The Rapper has worked with the Democrats, in the past. But, tonight, he tweeted that black people don’t have to be Democrats, setting Twitter off.
