Can Chance the Rapper accomplish something mean, please?
Chicago’s humanitarian rapper conveyed an early Christmas to his home city on Monday, gifting 300 sets of unreleased Jordan Retro 11s to a horde of secondary school understudies.
Chance was going to his month to month Open Mike night, an adolescent occasion exhibited by his philanthropy SocialWorks and the Chicago Public Library. The occasion harmonized with the three-year commemoration of the passing of Chance’s guide, Chicago artist and dissident Mike Hawkins, for whom the Open Mike occasions are named.
At Monday’s occasion, which highlighted rapper Korporate as a speaker, Chance took the Cindy Pritzker Auditorium organize, at that point talented 300 sets of $220 Jordan 11s to each and every participant — and these tennis shoes won’t be discharged until Saturday, Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. ET.
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…

Truly, this goddamn person. As though setting up a $2.2 million store for Chicago Public Schools’ specialties programs, or giving one of his Grammys to Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African American History, wasn’t sufficient.
