Chance The Rapper continues to show & prove for the Chicago community.
Chance The Rapper is one of the few artists who has been actively uplifting and bettering his own community, not just talking about doing so. We've heard about Chance hosting "Open Mike" (mic) nights in Chicago for high school students, and now he's announced another free event he's putting on for Chi-town teens.
Chance took to twitter to announce the first annual Teens in the Park festival (T.I.P.), which will take place on June 24th at Northerly Island. The event will be free to all teens.
In his curation of the festival, Chance is picking out local acts to perform at the event (including recent SURF star Donnie Trumept), and there will also be non-musical activities such as arts and crafts, graffiti, dancing and more, which will be hosted by The Art Institute and Donda’s House.
If you're between the ages of 13-24, you can register for free tickets here.
