About Chance The Rapper
With a sound and style all his own, armed with an extra helping of swagger and boundless enthusiasm, Chance the Rapper became one of the most talked about up and coming Hip-Hop artists when he was barely twenty years old. When Chance was suspended for ten days during his senior year of High School in Chicago, he hatched his first mixtape, "10 Day" which would garner the attention of Childish Gambino. He subsequently appeared on tracks with his peers, such as Hoodie Allen and Joey Bada$$. His next mixtape, "Acid Rap," came out in 2013 to universal acclaim, and featured Action Bronson, Vic Mensa, Ab-Soul, and Twista, featuring production from the likes of Jake One and Nosaj Thing. Chance quickly gained a reputation for his unconventional, gravelly sing-rap delivery and his conscious, acute, and playful lyricism. He has since appeared at major festivals including Lollapalooza, and has launched his own tour which ended in December, 2013.
- Chance's good friend, Rodney, was stabbed and killed in front of him, a fact he referenced in the somber, "Acid Rain."
- His ten-day suspension from school during his senior year prompted his debut mixtape, entitled, "10 Day."
- "The College Dropout," by Kanye West was the first rap album Chance ever heard and remains a large influence on him.
- Childish Gambino discovered his first mixtape and asked him to be his opening act for Gambino's 2012 U.S. tour.
- Selling weed was a large source of Chance's income before his music took off. He maintains that it provided a steadier source of income than he has now.
