CHICAGO (AP) — Chance the Rapper is weighing in on the Chicago mayor’s race.

The Grammy Award-winning artist from Chicago on Tuesday endorsed Amara Enyia in the 2019 race to replace Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, said during a news conference at City Hall that he and Enyia “share a vision for what Chicago could be.” He says they both want to help “people on the bottom.”

He also says he “probably won’t ever be running for mayor” himself, despite becoming more politically active in recent years.

Enyia is director of the Chamber of Commerce in a west side Chicago neighborhood. She ran briefly for mayor in 2015, but dropped out before the election.

More than a dozen people have said they’re running in the February election.

“I wanted to make sure she was okay,” Jada Pinkett Smith said. “We went through what happened and in the moment I realized as a mother you also have to give your children space to deal with their own shadow.”

The Girls Trip star said she chose to pay attention to the positive things that came from Willow’s revelation.

“I focused more on how she got herself out versus what got her there,” she said. “I was most proud about that she could share it in the way she did, which let me know she had come through in a major way that she could put it on the table like that.”

“I wanted to focus on what [it was] that got her through,” the actress explained. “I really talked to her about her powering side of her journey and give her all the praise in the world for that part instead of focusing on, ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’”
