Wow.

At just twenty-five, Chance the Rapper has expertly assessed the landscape of dysfunction, that birthed the fatal notion of how raping a Black girl isn’t nearly as troublesome as exacting that same treatment on the fragility and purity of White girls, or girls that are as close to that aesthetic as possible.

The days of eyes wide shut are over.

Those who refuse the offer to do the right thing regardless of minor repercussions are indicted in the court of opinion. You can’t eat your cake and have it too. You can’t be defectors who ask Nice For What? When you’re forever bonded to Mob Ties.

For better or worse.
