We invented rock before the Stones got through
Chicago has been rocking far before English rock bands such as The Rolling Stones started to take over the charts in America.
Muddy Waters, arguably the father of the Chicago Blues, wrote a song called “Rollin' Stone” from which the band The Rolling Stones took their name. Rock music was greatly influenced by Blues music.
And so Chicago invented rock music before the song he sampled was even created.
But “blues” might have yet another meaning given the lines that come before. He’s often “off”, or down, and so he’s got the blues both emotionally and musically
Chance could also be saying “before the stones got threw”
