Chance The Rapper used the power of Instagram to livestream a traffic stop in Chicago on Sunday, October 8. In the video, Chance is seen in the passenger seat while his significant other Kirsten Corley is in the driver’s seat.
“Just want y’all to be here in case it gets out of hand,” Chance explains in the video. “Should be good though. Should be straight…I have great faith in humanity and the men and women that put on the badge, but, you know, you can’t be too careful.”
“But policing as a system is disproportionately racist and oppressive,” he continued. “I ain’t got no [gun] in the car, no drugs in the car. Nothing going on, just came back from church.”
Chance and Corley were pulled over with their daughter in the car for a moving violation at approximately 1pm. Nothing other than a warning was issued.
