Chance the Rapper and Starbucks: Made Ready interview

The award-winning artist is partnering with Starbucks for the new Made Ready campaign, inspired by Starbucks Ready to drink canned and bottled coffees – and people who are always ready for new opportunities.

Here’s a tidbit about Chance the Rapper I didn’t know before. He started a non-profit organization back in 2015 in Chicago called Social Works. They focus on the arts, education, and civic engagement for local youth. You can check out the organization by clicking the button below.

Chance, who was born Chancelor Johnathan Bennett, grew up listening to Michael Jackson on cassette tapes (in elementary school he won a Michael Jackson dance contest) and the gospel and R&B music his parents played at their house in West Chatham on Chicago’s South Side. An early home movie shows a glimpse of the performer he’d become as he and his little brother Taylor, now also a rapper himself, dance in their pajamas together to the song “White Christmas”.
