2016 has been a great year for my guy

Chance On Top

Chancellor Johnathan Bennett.

AKA (also known as) Chance The Rapper BKA (better known as) Lil Chano from 79th or Chano.

While in high school, Chance realized that he had a knack for music and pursued his music dream at the peak of his senior year in 2011. His first mixtape, 10 Day released April 2012 was packed with singles such as Windows and Hey Ma didn't get the recognition it deserved. It wasn't until after his next mixtape, Acid Rap was where Chance began swimming mainstream. Well-known tracks included Lost, Juice, Pusha Man , and Cocoa Butter Kisses which gained popularity within many social media platforms.

In 2013, Chance blazed the scene with a sound no one has ever heard before. New guy on the block with a trick up his sleeve and a story to tell. Acid Rap has been downloaded over 1 million times since its release date and still rolling and currently 10 Day is climbing right behind it reaching over 500,000 downloads.

December 2013, Back To School Pack an EP was released and didn't receive any buzz at all. I haven't really seen any promotion for this mixtape but I listened to two songs entitled, Dear Chicago Summer and Nostalgia.

August 2015, Chance collaborated with Bay Area rapper, Lil B for Free which in my opinion was a bad move but everything is a learning experience. The collaboration mixtape didn't get merely as many views as previous solo projects but shows that Chance is willing to take risks.

May 2016, Coloring Book was released and opened many eyes to Chance The Rapper. This mixtape featured artists from Lil Wayne to Jay Electronica, tackling all odds and giving hip-hop the sound we all needed to hear.

Now that I gave you a discography, 2016 has been a great year for my guy Chance.

After the release of Coloring Book, Chance The Rapper has soared up the ranks joining artists like Kanye West, Lady GaGa, and Beyonce on various music charts.His name is becoming more common in the rap game, hell in the music industry period. He's been producing tracks for Kanye, socializing with Beyonce, modeling for fashion magazines and is pulling in major endorsement deals (H&M X Kenzo campaign). He is the man, rising from the depths of trial and error; bouncing back like a rubber band. He has captured fans with his catchy ad-libs, smooth beats, and relatable lyrics.

He is nominated for a Grammy and winning two BET Hip Hop awards (Best New Hip Hop Artist and Best Mixtape, Coloring Book). With a performance lined up this Christmas at the National Christmas Tree Lighting at The White House. His current tour "Magnificent Coloring World Tour", has fans on their toes and has been receiving rave reviews. In short, Chance The Rapper has really [w]rapped up 2016,

I'm sure in 2017 there's more to come from this Chicago rapper until then we will bask in his greatness.

Student Life

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
