Chance the Rapper is endorsing Amara Enyia, the director of the Austin Chamber of Commerce, in Chicago’s heated and crowded race for mayor.

Chance made his announcement at a Tuesday morning news conference inside City Hall where a phalanx of at least 13 news cameras greeted the celebrity.

The Sun-Times reported Monday that Enyia was Chance’s likely choice.

Chance ignited a firestorm of speculation on Monday when he tossed out the second half of a line from one of his songs on Twitter.

Just after noon, Chance tweeted: “Im thinkin maybe I should” — part of a line from his 2015 song “Somewhere in Paradise.”

But it begged the question — should what? Was the answer in the song? Because here’s the key lyric:

“They screaming Chano for mayor, I’m thinking maybe I should”

The tweet prompted a swarm of his followers to urge him to come through with the first half — run for mayor.

Chance’s endorsement comes after his father, Ken Bennett, a former aide to Mayor Rahm Emanuel, endorsed Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle for mayor last month.
