While NBA legend Michael Jordan is widely considered as a local hero for the city, at least one Chicago native has a certain disdain towards the five-time Most Valuable Player winner. This isn’t just any Chicagoan, as this hater comes in the form of Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper.

Chance jumped on the Colin Kaepernick Nike ad meme craze, but instead of coming out with his own comical version of the viral ad, the rapper decided to use it as an avenue to make his qualms about Jordan public.

This is a very strong message from Chance who himself is known to be a community activist, especially when it comes to the issue of oppression on African Americans. It is obvious that with his NSFW jab on Michael Jordan, Chance is calling out the 55-year-old for not taking advantage of his celebrity status to make a difference in the community.

Throughout his 13 seasons with the Bulls, what Jordan has brought to the city in the basketball sense is unquestionable. The 14-time All-Star bagged a total of six championships for the city, and practically put the entire Bulls franchise on his shoulders for over a decade.

However, as it is made clear by Chance, there are some who believe that given his position in the community, Jordan has a huge responsibility in his hands. Chance is obviously not a fan of MJ, and has every intention of making his true feelings known.
