Chicago native Chance the Rapper is up ‘All Night’ celebrating the success of ‘Coloring Book’, his highly acclaimed mixtape. Ranked ‘Album of the Year’ by Variance Magazine, ‘Coloring Book’ has received 7-Grammy nominations including ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Rap Album’, and the accolades don’t stop there.
‘Coloring Book’ 2016 year-ending stats:

Not too bad for an indie artist, right?
Currently, Chance’s ‘All Night’ (ft. Knox Fortune) is spreading like a wild-forest fire, and the fire department at the radio stations have been guilty of helping it spread into the inner cities and suburbs of North America, and now, it’s growing around the globe. And if you haven’t partied on the Chance the Rapper train yet, then we seriously urge you to do so. Hey, what do you have to lose? Maybe a bunch of crayons, perhaps?
FUN FACT: Chancelor Bennett, a.k.a. Chance the Rapper, used a 10-day suspension, during his senior year, to record his debut mixtape ‘10 Day’. The mixtape grabbed the attention of Forbes magazine, which featured it in the publication’s ‘Cheap Tunes‘ column, which enabled Childish Gambino to ask Chance to join his 2012 ‘Tour of America‘ as the opening act.
