Nice to see you Father New Year
Middle finger Uncle Samuel
While he’s nice to see another year, The American Dream is not something Chance witnesses much of. By saying “Fuck you” to Uncle Sam, Chance’s criticizing the Government, who on top of not solving the violence problem in Chicago, get involved in other violent conflicts that don’t pertain them.
It could also be refering to how kids get drafted into the army to escape the streets, only to be killed while on duty.
Father New Year and Uncle Sam are both personifications of ideas and holidays, and he gives them human characteristics with the words “Father” and “Uncle”.
