Chance the Rapper Teams Up With Google for Big Donation to CPS

The hip-hop star has teamed up with Google to help local youth and schools launch a massive computer science program.

Chicago's Chance the Rapper has risen to fame over the last few years but it hasn't stopped him from giving back to his hometown.

The three-time Grammy victor teamed up with Google to bring computer science education to students in the Chicago area.

This means the Bulls are the first team in the National Basketball Association to call Chance by his correct titles. Chance the Rapper surprised students at Adam Clayton Powell Paideia Community Academy in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood to announce the donation Wednesday morning. "We don't know exactly what those jobs will look like, but we know the skills they will learn through coding, like critical thinking and creative problem solving are going to be critical for the future". $1 million of that money will go to SocialWorks, Chance's non-profit organization, and $500,000 will go to the Children First Fund, which will support computer science programming at Chicago Public schools.

Chicago's philanthropic rapper brought an early Christmas to his home city on Monday, gifting 300 pairs of unreleased Jordan Retro 11s to a crowd of high school students.

This prompted Chance to have a simple request, should this happen again.
