Chance the Rapper sits down with Katie Couric at Harold's Chicken Shack

Chance the Rapper, who once rapped "They murking kids; they murder kids here/Why you think they don't talk about it? They deserted us here/Where the f**** is Matt Lauer at? Somebody get Katie Couric in here" on his song "Paranoia" from his breakthrough mixtape "Acid Rap" in 2013, finally got Katie Couric in here.

The three-time Grammy winner and Couric discussed his rise, faith and family, his vision for Chicago and what it means for him to stay independent.

"All of that time, up until the Grammys, was the craziest time of my life," Chance said. "Once it happens, it just kind of bookends it. I just can't wait for the next preparation time."

Couric and Chance also discussed the violence in Chicago, calling it "bogus" and calling for politicians on the left and right to pass budgets for after-school and arts programs.

He continued, "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.”

But, he says, Chicago is where he's supposed to be.

Chance the Rapper is also scheduled for a Wednesday meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner.
