Chance The Rapper Opens Up About Battle With Anxiety


Chance the Rapper

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.

Chance The Rapper Gives One Million To Chicago Public Schools After Funding Cut


Chance the Rapper

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.

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.

Chance the Rapper

Following his spectacular win at last weekend’s Grammy Awards, rising hip-hop star Chance the Rapper is capitalising by announcing a string of live dates in North America for this spring – but is not calling in at his home city of Chicago!

Taking to Instagram to share the love on Valentine’s Day, the prodigiously young rapper posted a picture of the tour dates, which takes in 35 dates across the United States and Canada. Beginning on April 24th in San Diego and winding up nearly two months later on June 17th, he’ll also be playing one huge show in October in Los Angeles. However, there'll be no grand homecoming show in Chicago, much to the disappointment of his legions of loyal fans.

Each item is inspired by Obama, either boasting his image or something related to him.

Chance The Rapper's New Song "No Better Blues" Will Make Or Break Your Weekend


Chance the Rapper

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 And It's Full Of Celebrities


Nick Offerman Michael Shannon Melissa McCarthy Conan O'Brien Chance the Rapper

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!
