Chance the Rapper Buys Influential Chicago News Site

Anne Branigin | The Grapevine

You can now add media mogul to Chance’s formidable resume.

In a new track (one of four released at midnight on Thursday), Chance The Rapper dropped word of a major new acquisition: The Chicagoist, an online media outlet that specializes in local reporting on the Windy City.

Chance announced the media move in the song, “I Might Need Security,” with the lyric: “I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist bitches out of business.”

(The lines preceding it talk about an attempted doxxing after he missed an interview, and the Chicago Sun-Times reporting on his alleged child support issues.)
