Los Angeles: Rapper Chance believes he has an influential voice in society in the US and has even boasted about having a larger platform than the current US President Donald Trump.

"I just have a larger platform than I have a bigger voice than Donald Trump, than literally anybody who works in politics," Chance said on a podcast.

"I can connect with people on the level of appealing as a person who is still being a citizen, as a person who does what he wants. But I have ideas on how to voice opinions and ideas that other people just don't have," he added, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 24-year-old also stressed on the pressure hip-hip artists have where they have to project a "hard" persona.

He did, however, acknowledge that the scenario is changing for black musicians like himself.
