Chance The Rapper is advertising for a new creative intern on Twitter.
It is an unusual platform for such business, but Chance the Rapper has decided to advertise for a new intern via Twitter, and so far he has been inundated with applications since he put the job out there yesterday (March 27th 2017). But then, who wouldn't want to work for Chance?
Chance The Rapper at the Grammys
The Grammy winning hip hop artist requested resumes from experienced creative professionals in a proposition that was made not on LinkedIn or any other kind of career network, but on his Twitter account. Naturally, there are plenty of gifted individuals out there who are desperate to be considered for the opportunity.

Chance The Rapper has opened up about his battle with anxiety.
Chance the Rapper has opened up about his battle with anxiety.
The 23-year-old musician - whose full name is Chancelor Johnathan Bennett - has revealed he has only recently been ''exposed'' to the overwhelming notion, and is beginning to get a ''better understanding'' of the issue, which he has admitted was never a topic of discussion when he was younger.
Speaking to Complex magazine about the anxious feeling, he said: ''Anxiety is now something that I'm just getting exposed to, it's a big conversation and idea that I'm getting introduced to now.

He's calling for major companies to get involved in the cause.
Chance the Rapper has shown his support for his hometown and the education of children by donating a massive $1 million to public schools in Chicago, after an unsatisfying meeting last week with the man who wishes to brutally cut funding for the system.
Chance The Rapper donates $1 million to CPS
The musician met with the Governor of Illinois Bruce Rauner on Friday, following a Twitter exchange with the governor, in a bid to shed some light on the proposed cuts to public school funding - a move that many have branded as 'racially biased'. But it seems he got less than satisfactory answers from him because yesterday (March 6th 2017), Chance decided that he would make the substantial donation to the Chicago Public School system - a particularly generous offering when, according to some sources, he only earns $2 million a year.
The grime superstar will top the bill on Saturday night at Finsbury Park's Wireless Festival in July, with The Weeknd and Chance The Rapper also headlining.
He may have gone home empty-handed from the BRIT Awards last night, but Skepta’s profile is set to grow even further with the announcement that he is to headline the 2017 Wireless Festival in London this summer, alongside American heavyweights The Weekend and Chance the Rapper.
This year’s event is set to take place from July 7th-9th in North London’s Finsbury Park. Tickets are currently on sale for the 2017 edition of the festival, with further acts still to be announced.

The artist landed three gongs at last night's ceremony.
Chance the Rapper seemed blind-sided by his triple victory at the 59th annual Grammy Awards over the weekend, especially with it being his first venture into the prestigious ceremony. Nonetheless, he made sure the audience knew that the win was one of his team and one of his faith.
Chance The Rapper is now a three-time Grammy winner
The hip hop star added three Grammys to his growing list of awards last night (February 12th 2017) including Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance for his song 'No Problem' featuring Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz and Best Rap Album for 'Coloring Book'.

He'll hit Manchester and London with Snakehips this summer.
Chance the Rapper is returning to the UK this summer with two headline dates lined up in addition to his various festival appearances. There's no details on any further UK performances, so you best get to these shows while you've got the 'chance' (sorry).
Chance The Rapper visits the UK!
The rising hip hop star hailing from Chicago will hit London's Electric Brixton towards the end of June 2015 and Manchester's The Ritz at the beginning of July, and he will be joined by the UK's own Snakehips as special guests.

The song might just be the anthem of a generation. And it's released independently.
Ok, let’s talk about Chance the Rapper and No Better Blues, because that’s what you’ve been listening to all day anyway. And if it isn’t… why? Chance and The Social Experiment just released the track via SoundCloud this past Thursday. Besides being a really cool song (I’ll get to that part) No Better Blues also represents another steps in creators’ efforts to get their work straight to the people, skipping industry middlemen. Since CtR and The Social Experiment posted the link to their Twitter, the track has reached No. 2 on the network’s Trending 140.
Chance the Rapper is trying another unconventional avenue for music distribution - direct SoundCloud download.
The release is part of Twitter’s not-quite-thriving music service, so users can listen to it without even leaving the page/app. On Thursday, the social-media giant announced Twitter Audio Cards, which will allow listeners to listen to audio directly from their Twitter timelines with one click. Users can then dock the song in the corner and continue playback as they browse inside the mobile app.
Nick Offerman has directed a music video for Tweedy.
He's best known for playing the grumpy breakfast loving Ron Swanson on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation', but Nick Offerman has turned his hand to another profession: music video director. He's overseen the delightfully weird video for Tweedy's song, 'Low Key', which also features a host of celebrity cameos.
It's a different gig for the actor, usually seen in front of the camera
Tweedy is the latest project from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, comprised of himself and his son Spencer Tweedy. 'Low Key' is the first single from their first album, 'Sukierae', and the offbeat video shows them going door-to-door in attempts to sell their record to disinterested members of the public. Man of Steel actor Michael Shannon features as the assistant of the record label boss, whilst Melissa McCarthy, Conan O'Brien, Andy Richter and Chance the Rapper feature amongst the bemused homeowners who are visited by the band. There's also a very strange twist at the end of the video, but we won't ruin the surprise!

Budweiser Made in America is coming soon, but what's it like to be made in Denver, Colorado?
Budweiser Made in America
We explore the diverse Denver music scene as Budweiser unveil the latest in their series of documentaries ahead of the fast-approaching Budweiser Made in America festival.
When Jay-Z embarked on his Budweiser Made in America project, the ethos he wanted to represent was simple; bringing together bands and artists of all genres to celebrate the rich variation that has become the US musical community. And where better to enjoy this multi-genre theme than Denver, Colorado, home to the likes of everyone from gentle folk rock crooners The Lumineers to industrial Goth collective Velvet Acid Christ?
We're no detectives but...
Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper have piqued the interest of their fans after a tweet from one of the rappers gave away that the pair could be working on a collaborative EP. Childish Gambino tweeted "now that chance finally released his verse on "worst guys", maybe he can hurry up and finish the rest of our EP #hinthint."
The day after Chance debuted his unreleased verse for Gambino's 'The Worst Guys,' the 'Heartbeat' star took to Twitter to tease their fans with word of a possible joint release. There is no word on when the project will arrive, but hopefully Childish's nudging will see things moving in the right way as soon as possible.
Having seen Chance's name on Gambino's Because The Internet song, it was naturally assumed that the Chicago hip hop star would be featured in a verse until fans realised that all they'd be getting was a hook. However, performing yesterday at the Governor's Ball, Childish welcomed Chance onstage to perform the previously-unheard lyrics from the track.
