The 15-minute interview was filmed in Chicago at local restaurant Harold’s Chicken Shack, Asked about the violence in the city. Chance said “What’s happening is bogus,” and added: “As individual acts, it’s, you know, it’s terrifying and also sad. The respect for life is little [to] none in the city because we don’t really feel like people care about us. There’s a lot of things that I wasn’t exposed to or didn’t understand or know about until I went downtown. It’s literally like a different city over there.”
