About Chance The Rapper
Chancellor Bennett, aka Chance The Rapper, is one of the latest to take the hip-hop world by storm, with his 2013 full of high times and wild nights. And his ride is just getting started.
Bennett, who hails from the Windy City of Chicago, is known for his gray hoodies, black skinny jeans, mismatched shoes and wicked sense of humor. Or at least he was. Now, fans cram into venues not to critique his fashion choices or hear him crack jokes, but instead to perform clever rhymes and dance moves. Their rowdy approval is voiced at every show, fueling the man whose debut mixtape (2011's #10Day) made the world sit up and pay attention.
Bennett has told the story of how that aforementioned mixtape was written over a 10-day suspension from high school for smoking weed. It raised his profile, and wet the appetite of fans for the follow-up "Acid Rap," which combines a number of genres, including jazz, ghettotech juke and soul. The title track, along with songs like "Good Ass Intro" and "Everybody's Something," have landed him business meetings and sit downs with music industry label heads. But he still has yet to put his name on anyone's dotted line.
Behind a grassroots following, Chance the Rapper has sold out the 500-capacity Chicago club Lincoln Hall, toured nationally with Childish Gambino, and in 2013 rolled through 23 European cities with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. He recently embarked on his Social Experiment Tour that ran from October 25 to December 19, 2013.
