American Hip-Hop Artist Chance the Rapper to Perform in Manila This August
(Manila, Philippines, June 26, 2018) — American hip hop recording artist and a Grammy-Award winner, Chance the Rapper, is another international artist scheduled to visit Manila as announced by concert promoter MMI Live.
Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, known professionally as Chance the Rapper is slated to perform on August 22, 2018, at the MOA Arena presented by MMI Live together with Globe as he will be bringing his first-ever arena headlining tour in Asia.
Chicago superstar Chance the Rapper quickly rose to prominence after he self-released his debut mixtape “10 Day” in 2012 and his stunning ‘Acid Rap’ in 2013. Since then, Chance the Rapper has performed at festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza and worked with superstars like Lil B, Kanye West, Skrillex, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and more.
Though early in his career still, Chance the Rapper’s best bit as a hip-hop artist and musician has come from his third mixtape, ‘Coloring Book’ in 2016. The mixtape featured guest appearances from Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and Future.
Debuting at number 8 on Billboard 200, it became the first release to chart solely on streams. The mixtape was widely lauded by the critics and went on to receive three Grammy nominations including Best Rap Album, Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance for the single “No Problem,” featuring Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz with seven other nominations in total. It also became the first streaming-exclusive album to ever do so with over 57 million streams its first week. The Grammy-winning single, “No Problem,” was a Top 50 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and reached No. 5 on the Billboard Rhythmic chart.
A devout Christian and often refers to Christ in his songs, Chance the Rapper was also presented Chicago’s Outstanding Youth of the Year Award by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and was listed 7th on the Forbes “30 Under 30” 2015 music list.
