Watch Chance The Rapper, My Cousin Nicole & Jay Electronica’s video for “How Great”


Chance is a legend. We know this to be factual. So much of a legend, in fact, that he can drop a video straight off his iPhone, that was shot on an iPhone. That’s A1 synergy and oh-so futuristic. “How Great,” the Jay Electronica-featured bubbler on Coloring Book has been getting a lot of run on SiriusXM Radio, so it’s dope to see a visual come to life. It’s also great to see Chance’s cousin Nicole in real life. See, that wasn’t a duck tale — that was his actual cousin.

It’s a family affair. Below. “How Great” it is.

Chance The Rapper Covers Billboard’s Grammy Issue


Yet again.

Chance is back on the cover of Billboard Magazine like he never left. And the issue at hand is the special Grammy edition — where they discuss a potential nod and win with some of this year’s top prospects. Could Chance win best new artist? It looks that way. I wouldn’t be surprised if he grabs a handful of nominations this year, but I don’t wanna jinx the big fella.

When asked how he’d react if he gets a Grammy nom, Chance remarked:

Chance: The first thing I’ll do is give glory to God. If I get nominated, I’m going to throw a huge party in Chicago and I’ll fly in all my friends. We’ll celebrate the Grammys’ recognition of grass-roots independent artists and this new way of releasing music by nominating me. We’ll f—ing go crazy for, like, two days straight.

That’s music to my ears. I’m looking forward to that party. Read the full piece here.

Chance is the face of Kit Kat’s 2016 Halloween campaign, and today they unveiled their commercial starring the Chicago artist. It’s a play on his name in a very hilarious way, so props to whoever came up with the idea for this creative. They’ve got the right ad people in place. Ha!

Anyhoo, in the new spot he belts out his own rendition of the classic Kit Kat jingle. Hopefully these Wrapper packs will be on shelves this season, so I can pass them out at the crib when the trick or treaters fall through. Watch it below.
