Celebrate Chance the Rapper's Birthday With Some of His Best Work

Posted at April 16th, 2019 | by Shank | in Entertainment, Featured, Grapevine, Music

Born Chancelor Bennett in 1993, he shares not only his birthplace with legends like Kanye West and Twista (Chicago) but the vision and talent to take rap forward as well.
His early beginnings were insanely successful after a mixtape made when he was suspended from school, blew up, throwing him into the limelight.
Bennett has stated in interviews that Kanye West, James Brown, MC Hammer, Prince, Lupe Fiasco, Common, Young Thug, Lil Wayne, Esham, Eminem, Souls of Mischief and Freestyle Fellowship have influenced him. When asked about the gospel influences in his music, he also has stated that Kirk Franklin is one of his favorite artists, and his favorite composer
Bennett’s music has been described as versatile and up lifting. His music generally contains jazz-inspired melodies and gospel influences, and the lyrics usually have references to Christian theology, his struggles with his faith and his upbringing. Chance incorporates choirs into his music to attempt to maximise the gospel undertones.
Here’s a selection of his best:
