The biggest independent rapper in the world? Despite his refusal to conform to the current trends and having no major label affiliation, Chance the Rapper has earned a reputation as one of the most relevant and successful rappers alive. With his deep love for church music and his ridiculously talented wordplay, Chicago-born Chancelor Johnathan Bennett has continuously walked his own path and achieving a triumph that is truly his own. Spiritual, joyous and ruthlessly soulful – Chance the Rapper defies the norms of hip-hop without ever losing touch with its foundation.
It was with his third mixtape – the Grammy winning ‘Coloring Book’ (2016)– that Chance the Rapper fully infiltrated the mainstream. With bangers like ‘No Problem’ with Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, ‘Juke Jam’ with Justin Bieber and ‘All We Got’ with Kanye West, the album didn’t only receive billions of streams but more importantly was rightfully praised as an iconic piece of art. Since that Chance the Rapper has stayed busy, collaborating with Justin Bieber on ‘Holy’, releasing his album ‘The Big Day’ (2019), the mixtape ‘Merry Christmas Lil Mama’ in 2020 and latest track ‘A Bar About a Bar’. We are beyond excited to announce that Chance the Rapper will be returning to Sweden as a headliner at Way Out West!
Chance The Rapper is playing at Way Out West on Friday August 12th.
