XXL Freshman Chance The Rapper has been incredibly vocal about his desire to stop the violence in his hometown of Chicago. Whether it’s through his lyrics, interviews, or social media outlets, Chance has been doing all he can to make people aware of the deaths in his hometown due to senseless violence while actively looking for solutions to help quell the seemingly endless shootings and murders.

Over Memorial Day Weekend, Chance partnered with his father to start an ambitious social media campaign to spread hope in an effort to combat the escalating murder rate. Using the hashtag #SaveChicago and a grassroots campaign that saw people take to the streets with posters and banners that read #SAVECHICAGO, Chance feels that he helped play a part in the 42 hours of peace and non-shootings in the city over the long weekend.

Chance took to Twitter yesterday to comment on the #SaveChicago movement:
