Chance The Rapper donates $1 million to Chicago Public Schools; Michelle Obama approves


With all the blessings in his lap, it’s seems only right that Chance The Rapper pay it forward by giving back to his community in a biggggggg way…

During a press conference held at Chicago’s Wescott Elementary School on Monday, the 23-year-old Grammy Award winning city native announced that he’d be donating $1,000,000 to his hood’s public school system.

In his speech, the “No Problem” spitter explained that despite his issues with  Illinois governor, Bruce Rauner, he has absolutely no problem flexing his philanthropic muscles for the Chi’s disenfranchised youth…
“While I am disappointed in Governor Rauner, that will not stop me from doing all I can to support Chicago’s most valuable resource: its children,” Lil Chano from 79th said.

The altruistic “Cocoa Butter Kisses” rhymer went on to reveal that in addition to his generous gift of $1 million, he’d also be donating $10,000 to various schools’ after school programs.

“This isn’t about politics,” Chance said, “This isn’t about posturing, this is about taking care of the kids.”

And while the Hip-Hop heavyweight is currently receiving an influx of praise for his charitable efforts from social media saluters everywhere, he received his biggest nod from former First Lady, Michelle (LaVaughn Robinson) Obama who wrote, “Thanks [Chance The Rapper] for giving back to the Chicago community, which gave us so much. You are an example of the power of arts education,” to Twitter, yesterday.
