[UPDATE] October 16, 2018 1:00 p.m. EST Following cryptic tweets which suggested that Chance the Rapper would be considering to run for mayor, the Chicago native has officially announced that he is endorsing Amara Enyia for Mayor of Chicago instead.

Read the original story below.

Chance the Rapper has already donated a million dollars to Chicago schools, and recently pledged $1 million to aid mental health services in Chicago, and it looks like the Chicago native may possibly run for mayor to further help his city, after the artist published a tweet earlier on Monday with a sentence "I'm thinkin' maybe I should," a line taken from his 2015 single, "Somewhere In Paradise," where he raps about running for mayor.

Following the tweet, the plot thickened as Chance tweeted "City Hall pull up," which is accompanied with a declaration that he would hold a press conference regarding Chicago’s mayoral election at 10 a.m., however, he didn't reveal what day.

Additionally, the announcement could be to throw his support behind another candidate running for mayor, as Chicago's current Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced that he would not be seeking reelection. Stay tuned for updates.

Next, watch Chance the Rapper surprise fans as an undercover Lyft driver.
