One time for Chance The Rapper for inspiring the youth of Chicago to get involved in the arts.
In addition to performing at a youth poetry festival with Alec Baldwin in March, Chance The Rapper also curated an “Open Mike” event twice a month for high school students. Last night (May 11), he brought out special guests, Vic Mensa and Kanye West, who performed “U Mad,” “We Don’t Care,” and “All Day” to push inspiration a little bit further for these teenagers.

Last night’s “Open Mike” was the fifth installment of the series, and the first to take place on Chicago’s South Side. – Krissy Lewis
