Chance the Rapper Spike Lee

The pair's war of words began in December last year (15) after the hip hop star criticised the way Spike's latest film, Chi-Raq, depicted his hometown of Chicago.

Chance The Rapper Raises $100,000 For Homeless Charity

The rapper's Warmest Winter initiative is a joint venture with The Empowerment Plan, a non-profit organisation that employs and trains homeless women to make self-heating waterproof winter coats that transform into sleeping bags.

Chance's target was $100,000 (£62,500), which will be enough to make 1,000 of the sleeping bag jackets, called EMPWR coats. He took to Twitter.com to confirm donations can still be made to the charity until 13 January.

In 2014, more than 5,239 homeless people were in shelters in Chicago, and 965 were sleeping outdoors. Executives at homeless charity All Chicago revealed data showed that on any given night, more than 1,000 army veterans were sleeping rough in the city.

Spike Lee Hits Back At Chance The Rapper's 'Chi-Raq' Criticism


Spike Lee Chance the Rapper

Filmmaker and director Spike Lee has hit back at Chance the Rapper’s criticism of his new movie Chi-Raq, claiming that the rap star’s father works for the Mayor of Chicago and that his perspective is therefore skewed.

Last week, Chicago native Chance (real name Chancelor Bennett) made critical comments about Lee’s newly released film, calling it “exploitative and problematic” in an interview with The 405. However, in an interview on Thursday (December 10th) with MSNBC, the director said that his father, Ken Bennett was mayor Rahm Emanuel’s deputy chief of staff.
