They took my nigga one night, and I was standing right there
An inch away from Heaven, a million songs from right here

from Chance The Rapper – 14,400 Minutes Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Chance’s friend Rodney “Rod” Kyles Junior was stabbed and killed in front of Chance after a bump led to an altercation. Chance references this accident frequently in his music and even witnessed him get stabbed, hence “An inch away from Heaven”.

Chance worked hard in between the murder and the release of 10 Day, because he feels like he’s made “a million songs”, and he feels lucky to be living and to carry on for his bro.
