Chance The Rapper headlined night 15 of Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days In L.A. at the House Of Blues last night and it was just as amazing as you’d imagine. The sold-out event was packed early with a line down the street and tons of fans excited to see Chano do his thing. No surprise there, but Chance did have a few tricks up his sleeve.
Chance delivered an amazing set, which included a preview of a couple of new records and even brought out a special guest. Before closing out his set, Chance decided to surprise the audience and bring out Big Sean to perform his single “IDFWU”. Check out what went down in the clip above.
Chance The Voiceover Actor was featured in Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite series this past weekend, opposite Erykah Badu (yikes!) Chance played Bob Marley in the hilarious episode, which you can now watch below. Hurry before it’s pulled from YouTube, however.
Today, Chance The Rapper was awarded the highest honor for youth achievement in the City of Chicago by Mayor Rahm Emanuel: Chicago’s Outstanding Youth Of The Year award. Chance was presented the plaque which awards the recipient “For your outstanding contributions to the youth of the State of Illinois.” Another W for the good guy.
So what’s next? The key to the city or an honorary street? Stay tuned.
Chance The Actor.
Chance returns to the small screen tomorrow night for what’s sure to be a hilarious appearance on Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite. Chance will be providing the voice for Bob Marley in “How Honeybee Got Her Groove Back” (a.k.a. “Sexodus” or “Night of the Living Dickheads”), which is the fourth episode in Black Dynamite‘s new second season.
Chance spoke on what it was like to provide a voiceover for the show in his interview with Rolling Stone late last year. Check out what he had to say below.
Last night, at an undisclosed location, two of Chicago’s titans got together to record some new music. Yes, Chance The Rapper and King Louie were in the lab together, but what they were working on remains a mystery. Could they be working on the new Social Experiment project, Surf, or perhaps something from Louie’s Drilluminati 3 — both of which are due out later this year.
They do have one collabo in the can, the remix for King Louie’s “Time” (the original version was on Jeep Music), that was never released. But this appears to be something new. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available to us. Looking forward to hearing the outcome, nevertheless.
Nah, this isn’t a Spike Lee joint, but a Chancellor Bennett directed clip, in association with Social Experiment — or Sox for short. Today, Chance and the band break us off with this brand new joint titled “No Better Blues.” But nah, this isn’t just sad boy raps. It’s new SOX, so tell a friend to tell a friend. What does Chano hate exactly? Find out below.
Directed by Verluxe and Will Gates. Produced by Brian ‘All Day’ Miller’.
G Herbo, Com and Chano take everyone on a tour through the streets of Chicago in the official video for the “Fight Or Flight” remix. If you missed the mp3, grab it right here.
Herb’s debut effort, Welcome To Fazoland, is available for stream and download here. Look for Herb’s new project, Ballin’ Like I’m Kobe, to impact soon.
Earlier this year, Chano hit Al Lindstrom’s Toca Tuesdays to premiere a new record titled “Thotty“. There weren’t many details surrounding the song at the time, but we suspected that the track featured or was produced by J. Cole due to Cole’s ad-libs heard in the radio-rip.
Fast forward to this past Thursday and Chance joined Cole onstage during UIC’s Spark In The Park 2014 to perform their collaboration in full. No word on if we’ll get to hear it in mp3 form soon, but we sure hope so.
Until then, check out the footage of Chance and Cole performing “Thotty” above. Thanks, Nav.
