Chance the Rapper, Illinois governor discuss school funding

"He gave me a lot of vague answers", he said when asked what Rauner said during their 40-minute meeting Friday, March 3. "I asked him about funding CPS with that $215 million that was discussed in May of a year ago and was vetoed in December".

"He asked me where I thought the $215 million was supposed to come from", Chance said.

After the emcee left, Rauner spoke with the press and offered a more optimistic take on their meeting, noting that he and Chance would talk more over the weekend and prepare a funding solution to present to the legislature on Tuesday. "If we stood together, Chance, I have some power, I have power in some ways, you have great power in other ways".

"Chicago Public Schools and I did not lose today". Rauner said they discussed ways to decrease the gap between low-income and high-income schools. Lil Chano - who besides music is a father who works as an after school teacher - said he asked governor Rauner about funding Chicago public schools a sum of $215 million that was on the table in 2016.

Chance the Rapper wears many hats in addition to his omnipresent "3" ball cap: Grammy Award victor, community organizer-and now, believe it or not, state budget negotiator.

Rauner and the rapper first connected after the Grammy Awards when Rauner tweeted congratulatory remarks for the night's Best New Artist victor while the rapper responded with a request for a meeting to discuss education in IL.

'Doubt' Pulled From CBS Schedule
While the show received largely positive reviews, mostly for its acting rather than storylines, the rating just weren't there. Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox's new show Doubt has been pulled from the CBS schedule after only airing two episodes.

"I said, if we stood together Chance, I have some power".

In December, Rauner vetoed the funding bill for failing to address broader pension reforms as he had demanded, according to Chicago Tribune.

However, Chance did send a positive tweet later in the day. "Monday morning I'll have a plan", he said.
