WHY CHANCE THE RAPPER SHOULD BE YOUR NEW FAVORITE ARTIST 🎼💯
Seriously. Even if you don't like rap, you'll love this guy.
- •All of his music is free. Literally, all of it.Chance wants to make his music as accessible as possible. He wants it to reach the widest audience possible.
- •He dropped Jason Van Dyke's name in both his SNL performances.Van Dyke is the Chicago cop who shot Laquan McDonald 16 times and murdered him. Chance has stated how we are so focused on McDonald's name, but that is deflecting attention off the murderer himself, a murderer who still hasn't been convicted. He stressed how important it is that we do not forget that name - Jason Van Dyke.
- •He did this INCREDIBLE arrangement of the Arthur theme song.Go to the link and click play. Welcome to your new favorite song. https://twitter.com/chancetherapper/status/703995993172402176
- •He brought over 1,000 winter coat to all the homeless in Chicago.The project, Warmest Winter, raised money to bring special winter coats to Chicago's homeless population. The costs are self-heating and transform into both a sleeping bag and a duffle bag.
