I think I might be in love with Chance the Rapper because I swear, he seems like the nicest guy ever.
A few months ago, Chance the Rapper has already donated millions of dollars to the public school systems of Chicago, but that wasn’t it. His philanthropic wheels kept turning. So, for the Holidays, he gave 300 pairs of unreleased Jordan Retro 11s to high schoolers in his home town.
On the anniversary of the passing of my mentor Brother Mike, @OpenMikeChicago had one of it’s best nights yet. Thanks to @Korporate00 for speaking and thanks to @Jumpman23 for bringing 300 pair of unreleased 11s for the young creatives. Until next year… POWER TO THE PEOPLE…

Chance hosts a monthly Open Mike night, a youth event by his charity SocialWorks and the Chicago Public Library. This year, it happened to be the three-year anniversary of the death of Chance’s mentor, Chicago poet and activist Mike Hawkins. So, he marked the event by giving the crowd the Jordan 11s.
