Chance the Rapper’s star is on the rise. Following his collaboration with Justin Bieber, the 20-year-old Chicago MC made his late-night television debut on Thursday’s “Arsenio.” Sporting a Chicago White Sox varsity jacket, he lit up the stage with an energetic performance of “Chain Smoker” off his acclaimed mixtape Acid Rain.
During his interview with Arsenio, he spoke about openingfor Eminem, the violence in his hometown, and starting a union for rappers.
“Rappers need dental, rappers need health,” he said. “There’s certain benefits that don’t come with being an artist and it’s mainly rappers. … If we could just start a union, I think it would definitely work for the best.”
Earlier this week, he shot a video for his Bieber collaboration “Confident.”
