Future Releases 'Use Me' Music Video

(Radio.com) Future has been breaking records lately by landing back-to-back number one albums, but he's not done rolling out content by a long shot. He released a new video for "Use Me" on Tuesday (March 7th).

In the video, Future appears haunted by his younger self. He sits alone in an empty diner, where the camera cleverly captures a young boy's image in the reflection of Future's sunglasses, but when it cuts to a wider shot the boy is nowhere to be seen. When he suddenly does appear, the two stare face-to-face as if Future were being confronted by his past.

Near the halfway point, the video flashes back to a moment when Future witnessed two men break into his house and rob a woman (purportedly his mother) at gunpoint. The memory hangs over him as he sits drinking out of a soda cup in the diner, and he eventually makes his way back to that house and to that moment as an adult. "Use Me" appears on the second of Future's two recent album, HNDRXX. Watch the clip here.

Though it's her first foray into film and television, the Rolling Stone cover girl and GRAMMY presenter seemed quite comfortable in a promotional behind-the-scenes video.

Jackson said the experience presented her with new creative opportunities: "This role is really opposite to me and for it being my first real on-camera acting, I think it's a good way for me to show my acting capabilities."

Chance the Rapper Pledges To Give $1 Million To Public Schools

(Radio.com) Chance the Rapper live streamed a press conference at Westcott Elementary School in Chicago, located only three blocks from where he grew up, last week (March 6th). There, he announced he would be donating $1 million to Chicago Public Schools.

After meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner on Friday (March 3rd), the two had an additional conversation over the weekend. "Our talks were unsuccessful," Chance said. "Governor Rauner still won't commit to giving Chicago's kids a chance."

Chance illustrated how Illinois had specifically increased funding in other cities besides Chicago. "Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positions," he said. "If the governor does not act, CPS will be forced to end school 13 days early, which means over 380,000 kids will not have adult supervised activities in June and could possibly be put in harm's way."
