This is quite the honor for him!
Chance the Rapper was named one of Fortune Magazine’s 50 Greatest Leaders in the World. This is a huge honor for the rapper, who has made it a point to be active in global and community issues, seeking to inspire and motivate his fans to do better in the world. His actions have not gone unnoticed, with the magazine pointing out many of his accomplishments.
At 23, the rapper has shed “old-fashioned stereotypes” of what a leader is, becoming “a political force as an anti-violence campaigner,” according to the article. Of note is his $1 million donation to public schools in Chicago to help curb the growing violence there, and he promises more good is to come.
