Lil Wayne Brings Out Chance The Rapper At Chicago Tour Stop

One of the most exciting things that can happen at a concert is realizing that you're getting more than you paid for. Moreover, Lil Wayne recently stopped by Chicago, Illinois on his "Welcome To Tha Carter" tour on Sunday (April 9). Not only that, but he brought out special guest Chance The Rapper to perform for his home city, and the energy in the venue was palpable. Furthermore, social media clips online show the two performing their 2016 hit "No Problem," which landed on Chance's critically acclaimed album Coloring Book. Even seven years after that collab, the two lyricists still seemed to have a lot of fun reconnecting and putting on a great show for fans.

Of course, that track wasn't the only time the two crossed over. However, one of their sonic link-ups came through a pretty unorthodox method that Chance The Rapper employed back in 2020. For those unaware, he used to share songs exclusively on his Instagram, one of which featured both Lil Wayne and Young Thug, which is a crazy pairing considering their beef. However, apparently Chance either put two random features together or convinced them to put that aside for a quick and traditionally unreleased loosie.

Also, the Chicago MC thanked Lil Wayne for helping him reach Grammy-winning status, whether for his profile boost or for his guidance in the process. Said gratefulness came as Weezy announced Tha Carter V would finally see the light of day, which was a big moment for both fans and the industry. With that in mind, the two seem to have quite the close relationship. That persisted all the way to a fun performance at Chicago on Sunday's tour stop.

Meanwhile, Tunechi's been enjoying a highly successful and also quite intimate tour, as his chosen venues aren't usually massive stadiums. During his shows, he plays a wide collection of his hits, but especially those from the earlier days of his career. Furthermore, it seems the New Orleans legend wanted to speak to the day ones with this tour, and he received a heap of praise for it. Regardless, stick around on HNHH for the latest news and updates on Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne.
