Chance the Rapper, real name Chancelor Bennett, is an American hip hop recording artist all the way from Chicago in Illinois, USA.
Chance the Rapper was born in 1993 on April 16. He showed an affinity for music from a young age and was very musical at school, forming a hip hop duo whilst still in high school. It was during his school days that he recorded his first full length project, a mixtape he titled ’10 Day’. Despite being somewhat of a troublemaker, having been suspended for weed related activities, Bennett had big musical aspirations and in December 2011 he released his first song, ‘Windows’ and announced his ’10 Day’ project. After a further year of polishing his music, Bennett finally released the album on April 3 2012. It was received very well locally and made available to download via Datpiff, which it subsequently was over 250,000 times. This staggering success marked just the start of Bennett’s career and his transformation into Chance the Rapper.
Chance’s second mixtape release, entitled ‘Acid Rap’ earned him mainstream recognition and he soon began to earn a following. Released on April 30 2013, it was certified double platinum and downloaded 800,000 times. It was also nominated for Best Mixtape at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards that year. It was listed on multiple top 50 album lists that year and led to Chance touring across the US for the first time.
