Chance The Rapper is perhaps the most gracious artist in the industry. Today the Coloring Book rapper donated a total of $1,000,000 to Chicago public schools.
Chance The Rapper would state, “While I’m frustrated and disappointed in the governor’s inaction, that will not stop me from doing all I can to support Chicago’s most valuable resource: its children three blocks from where I was raised.” He would continue by saying, “Today, I am proud to announce I am donating $1 million to Chicago public schools.”
This donation would come after a 30 minute meeting with Chicago governor, Bruce Rauner, where Chance would voice his frustrations with the Chicago school system which has recently suffered from budget cuts.
Big ups to Chance The Rapper on the wonderful donation! More rappers need to take notes because this is how we can empower our community. Check out the video clip below:
