Chance the Rapper 

When: Fri., May 19, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $25-$166
Fresh off changing the Grammy by-laws and snagging a trio of trophies himself, the inimitable Chance the Rapper brings his one-of-a-kind energy to Blossom on a Friday evening stop of his spring tour. The Southside Chicagoan cut his teeth at open mics and spoken word sessions across the Windy City, growing a local following with his Ten Day mixtape that quickly flipped into an international fanbase with his second mixtape, the critically-acclaimed Acid Rap. Heavily influenced by jazz, gospel music, and Chicago house, Chance’s unique sing-song floats and stabs with poetic lace over diverse, layered, gorgeously composed production. Rejecting major labels and opting to remain independent despite countless overtures, Chance released his 2016 Coloring Book to universal acclaim. The album – chock full of A-list features from hip-hop and pop’s beating pulse – was the first ever streaming-only album to garner a Grammy award. With three mixtapes and a handful of top-notch features in his repertoire, the 24-year-old is sure to light up the Blossom stage. (Lawrence Neil)
