Chance the Rapper Films Police Stop

Grammy Award-winner Chance the Rapper livestreamed a traffic stop Sunday to his almost 7 million Instagram followers in case things went "sideways".

While in the vehicle with the mother of his child, Kirsten Corley, as well as his daughter, Kensli, the happy family is stopped by authorities for a traffic stop.

"Just want y'all to be here in case it gets out of hand", he says, "Should be good though". I don't have any problem with the men and women who are courageous enough to put on that badge.

And though his partnership with Lyft is new, the Grammy victor raps about ride-sharing in his song "All Night", off last year's "Coloring Book" project: "You should use your phone, call a Uber / You a goofy if you think I don't know you need a Lyft".

According to People, the video ended with the officer giving Corley a warning for a moving violation.

Chance The Rapper has always been vocal about social issues, and police brutality has been one of them.

A representative for Chance didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Watch the livestream from Chance in the video below to see what went down.

"Once again, have great faith in the men and woman who put on the badge", Chance said.

In an interview with Billboard a year ago, Chance said, "There's a larger conversation we need to have about the role of police officers, their relationship to the people as enemy or executioner, when they're not supposed to be either".

Chance notes that he has "no gun in the auto, no drugs in the vehicle", and his family is coming back from church.
