Award Wining rapper, Chano popularly known as Chance The Rapper has recently been named as one of Fortune Magazine‘s 50 greatest leaders in the world, at the tender age of only 23.
The musical dynamo checks-in at number 46 on the list, which includes NBA superstar LeBron James, comedian and late night talk show host Samantha Bee, politician John McCain and Pope Francis. Chance is the only rapper on the list.
The publication commended the Coloring Book artist for his willingness to release his music without the help of a major record label and for donating $1 million to Chicago Public Schools.
If 2016 was the year that Chance truly rose to the ranks of rap superstar, 2017 has been the year of him becoming something even more. Advocacy and accolades have been the name of the game for Chano in the early stages of the new year.
