With the current climate between minorities and police around the country, Chance the Rapper took precaution during a recent traffic stop and livestreamed his.

Over the weekend, the rapper and and girlfriend Kirsten Corley were pulled over for a routine traffic stop and he began filming, claiming he wasn’t “fin’a be playing around” with the police.

With cop car sirens shined behind him, Chance said he was simply being cautious. “Just want y’all to be here in case it gets out of hand,” he said. “Should be good though. Should be straight. I have great faith in humanity and the men and women that put on the badge — but, you know, you can’t be too careful.”

Later, Chance reiterated his stance on police injustice, while making it clear he had no drugs or guns in the car. “Big faith in the men and women that put on the uniform, but policing as a system is disproportionately racist and oppressive,” he explained.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Illinois State Police confirmed that Corley was stopped at approximately 1 p.m. on Sunday (Oct. 8) for a moving violation and given a warning.
