Watch Chance The Rapper's live concert at the Hollywood Bowl Wednesday night and donate to the hurricane relief efforts.
Chance the Rapper closed out his on-going tour Wednesday night in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl, but for those of you who aren't in the LA area to see the show go down live in person you're in luck. The Chicago rapper has decided to live stream his last show on Youtube and he’s using the stream to benefit the victims of Hurricane Maria.
Viewers at home have been encouraged to donate directly to Direct Relief, a global humanitarian organization committed to helping those affected by emergencies. For those interested in showing their support can do so by donating over at ChanceRaps.com.
Watch the live stream go down while its still up, where the Chicago emcee also performs his new song with Daniel Caesar called “First World Problems,” which he debuted on Stephen Colbert last week. Watch it all go down (below).
Update: The stream has ended, but we'll be sure to update you with some highlights and footage of the evening when they become available.
Chance The Rapper isn't the only artist giving back to the hurricane relief efforts. Jay Z, Fat Joe, Carmelo Anthony, Remy Ma, and Pitbull are just some of the figures who’ve donated their time, money, and resources to help the hurricane-ravaged island. In fact, in similar fashion as tonight’s show with Chance, Jay Z is holding a benefit concert for Roc Nation artists & Tidal on October 17 in NYC. The event will feature performances by Cardi B, DJ Khaled, Joey Badass, and Tee Grizzley, ASAP Ferg, Vic Mensa, and more (See flyer below).
In other related news, the Las Vegas shooter who killed 59 people Sunday night at the Mandalay Bay hotel had reportedly first targeted Chance The Rapper's concert at the Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas the week prior. Senior law enforcement sources said that the shooter, Paddock, rented out numerous condos that overlooked the Festival, but for whatever reasons he didn't go through with his actions. But Chance's show was originally intended to be the target of Paddock's senseless act. Read more on that story right here if you missed it Wednesday.
