This love letter to the Chicago music and dance scene is named after the Windy City organization Wala Cam TV. Wala Cam is a platform that features various rising hip-hop and R&B artists from Chicago and the Midwest. Chance uses the program's name as the song's chorus, blending the words together in a way that also sounds like the phrase "while I can."
"I wanted to get the feeling, give people the feeling of Wala Cam without necessarily having to give them a long, drawn out history with narrative," Chance told Genius
, "Just like the feel of what Wala Cam gave to Chicago."
