Watch Chance the Rapper sit down for an hour-long interview at the University of Chicago


Chance the Rapper is enjoying the greatest year of his musical life - first having one of the most talked about verses on a Kanye West album and then releasing a mixtape almost universally praised. But Chancellor Bennett, being a multi-faceted human like the rest of us, is more than "just" a musician. If that wasn't already apparent it probably will be after watching this interview.

The 23-year-old sat down with the Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago for over an hour - discussing his childhood, Savemoney, music industry tactics, how he almost signed to Sony, activism, attempts at stand up comedy and so much more.

Take in the always carefully considered and always insightful answers below.
