“They screamin’, “Chano for mayor,” I’m thinkin’ maybe I should,” Chance The Rapper exclaimed on his song “Somewhere in Paradise” in 2015.

And now it might actually happen. Fans have started a petition on chano4mayor.com urging Chance to run for the mayor of Chicago and take on incumbent mayor Rahm Emanuel by launching a bid.

“Hey Chance, We think you’d be a great mayor. We love your music — we’ve been following your career from the first 10 days. We also love the work you’ve done to give back to the city that raised you. You represent Chicago on the world stage and you do us proud… We think if you ran, you would win. And if you won, you would do a good ass job. … You’d send a message that Chicago is ready for a new generation of leadership,” the fan site reads.

The site features illustrations of Chano alongside lyrics where he references his hometown and its issues.
