After the meeting, Chance released a statement where he said he was ‘flustered.’ Apparently, the meeting was unsuccessful with the governor offering vague responses.
“I’m a little bit flustered, just a little bit,” he said. “I thought that went a little different than it should have.”
He went on to explain that he wanted people to do their jobs.
“I’m not like a press person, so I don’t know how to do this sh**, but I’m just saying I want people to do their jobs. I want you all to do your jobs, as a matter of fact,” he said. “If all your publications that you guys work for … and the international and national publications out there – Complex, Billboard, people that post about me walking down the street and sh** — if you guys could give a comprehensive history on how we ended up here.”
But Chance is not the type to give up!
I guess… your move Oprah, Micheal Jordan, Obama…
