Chance The Rapper



Sat., Oct. 15, 8 p.m. 2016
Chance The Rapper’s Magnificent Coloring Book World Tour seizes on a typically kinetic TV performance, likely as not to go viral, and stretches it out for 90 minutes. He has enough clout in his native Chicago to sell out U.S. Cellular Field for his own festival, and literally wants to associate with him. But there’s no shell game, no secret mystery behind Chance The Rapper’s stranglehold on hip-hop. Much as with his mentor Kanye West, the genre is a lot more fun when he’s around. His mixture of secular bounce, Chicago juke, gospel and autobiographical confession is what made Coloring Book, his free project released in May, exceptional. Chance constantly smiling, engaging the audience and riffing off massive theatrical songs that blend whatever idea of church you have with the modern world? That’s what makes his live shows exceptional.
