Chance The Rapper is truly something special.
Amongst dropping great music, being a grammy winner, having the best dance moves, and being a great father, Chano is taking yet another victory lap after being named one of Fortunes Top 50 Leaders in the World.
At the age of 23, the independent rapper sits 26th on the list alongside other familiar names such as Pope Francis, Ava DuVernay, and Lebron James.
One of the reasons Chance is being recognized is his standout efforts to help the Chicago Public School System. The former XXL Freshmen made front page news after generously donating $1 Million Dollars to the school system. The money will go toward Arts and After-School Programming for the children. Another standout moment for Chance was last November, when he lead thousands of young voters to early voting lines to cast their ballots in downtown Chicago.
Let’s be honest, The Chi Town Rapper deserves all the blessings that are falling into his lap. Chance is uplifting, creative and influential.
We need more musicians like Chance at the forefront of our culture.
