“SHOW UP AT THE PROTEST…” – CHANCE THE RAPPER!
CBS aired the 69th yearly Emmy Awards from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday night, and with late-night consistent Stephen Colbert as the host – in a year amid which he’s added to the profoundly charged political climate – the night carried on with a normal tone of difference. What’s more, that social equity soul originated from a horde of voices, including Chicago’s latest Grammy Award-winning emcee, Chance The Rapper.
Fans of the rapper didn’t have to hold up long to be sprung upon with the amazement, as Chance made a cameo amid Colbert’s opening number. Chance spit a free-form strung with pleasantry that was steady with the topic Colbert foreshadowed with the line. “The world might be the worst we’ve ever seen, but it’s never been better on the TV screen.” Chance mixed it up by acknowledging the ceremony and bring to light some of the distressing developments that’s happening in our nation and around the globe but brought it home by encouraging listeners/watchers to become pro-active in helping address the problem of things.
“I love television, it’s a pleasant distraction/But just imagine taking action/I like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, in fact, I’m addicted/But where’s the cop show where one gets convicted?” Chance incorporated today’s hottest show titles, he then closed his verse by raping: “I get it, them finales, they got you focused/But just record the show and show up at the protest.”
