Can’t believe it never made the news."

Earlier on the same day, Chance recounted the story of his heroic action as he took a moment to reflect back on his 2018 memories, "AY so I never told this to the world but my friends can merch," he began. Merch is a Chicago slang word meaning verify or back up a claim with evidence. "I saved a persons life by myself on Easter Sunday this year omw To church. NBS on everything," he continued along with a picture of a heavily damaged car.
The "No Problem" rapper went on to note, "This afterwards but basically I was driving to church dolo, about to go south on lakeshore and another car drives into the wall in front of me goin like 90mph comin of the exit." He further claimed that he was the first person on the scene. "I was the only person out there when it first happened and his car was on fire so I had to break his window take off his seatbelt let his seat back and pull a whole grown man out the car unconscious," he recalled.
The three-time Grammy winner concluded his rescue story with a confession that he never found out if the man survived the accident or not. "In reality I never was able to find out if dude was alright so if this yo uncle or something let a n***a kno," he begged others to help him identify the man.
In addition to his heroic account, Chance reminisced the time he got down on one knee to propose to Kirsten Corley among others. Calling it "the greatest accomplishment" of his life, he noted, "I was accepted by the woman of my dreams, thus given the opportunity of a lifetime; To close the world and open my family."
