Chance the Rapper’s Open Mike


Monday January 31st, Chicago rap star Chance the Rapper hosted a open mic event in Cindy Pritzker Auditorium at the Harold Washington Library Center. Chance has hosted open mic events in Chicago for the youth for a while now, but it has never been this star-studded. In attendance at the open mike were Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler, Comedian Dave Chappelle, and the cast from the BET miniseries New Edition.”When I called them and told them that I had some high school, some young creatives in Chicago that needed to be around vocalists, actors, singers, dancers… and that they needed to be in this space and all these guys, without getting any money from me or anything, hopped on a flight and came out here to be in front of you guys,” Chance told the audience. This one of the most positive things going on in the city of Chicago. Chance is showing the youth that you can be successful by following your dreams.
