C is For Chance The Rapper

Chance the Rapper is an artist that has taken the music industry by storm. Unlike most artists in the music industry Chance refuses to sign a record deal.The Chicago native became an instant hit with Acid Rap, his 2013 mixtape. What makes his sound so different is the fact he uses real instrument rather than 808’s and other digital sounds. His sound is very distinct and unlike anyone else’s. Since his explosion into the music industry you can find him featuring on multiple songs including those performed by Action Bronson, Justin Bieber, Snakehips, and Tinashe just to name a few. He has also made guest appearances on television shows such as The Late Show With Stephan Colbert, Saturday Night Live, and The Tonight show.

He was also nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video for “Angels” at the MTV Video Music Awards. He currently is on an international tour with most locations being sold out.

As for his life outside of the music, Chance is a huge activist against gun violence. In 2014 alongside his father, he promoted the #SaveChicago campaign and watched the city go without a shooting in 42 straight hours.
