Chance the Rapper and the Art of Activism

Chancelor Bennett, otherwise known as “Chance the Rapper” is a 23-year-old independent artist born and raised here, on the south side of Chicago. As a teen from the West Chatham neighborhood, Chance was encouraged to pursue his musical aspirations by his mentors and friends at creative open spaces such as YouMedia located at the Chicago Public Library. As he has grown, Chance has become not only a well-known musician but a man who truly takes pride in giving back to the youth as well as underserved communities. As 2015’s Chicagoan of the Year and Saturday Night Live’s first independent Artist, Chance has certainly made remarkable achievements in a short period of time and he doesn’t plan on stopping now.
