2016 MTV Video Music Awards - Red Carpet

Chance The Rapper for president.

The Chi-Town spitter made a promise to his fans that all would be able to attend his sold out Chicago festival, and he definitely came through.

Billboard reports that Chance bought tickets off scalpers — who were charging $200 a pop — and sold them to his fans for an affordable $45 and $75 each.

From Billboard:

“The 23-year-old MC announced the buy-back on Twitter, posting a photo of stacks of tickets. On Saturday, he invited fans to swing by the site of the event for their chance to snag a pass. The reclaimed tickets quickly sold out. 

The Sept. 24 festival, being billed as the “first-ever music festival at U.S. Cellular Field on Chicago’s Southside,” boasts an impressive lineup: Alicia Keys, John Legend, Skrillex, Lil Wayne, Tyler, the Creator, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, Lil Uzi Vert and Chance himself. 

Magnificent Coloring Day is part of Chance’s current tour in support of his latest mixtape, Coloring Book, the first release to chart on the Billboard 200 through streaming numbers alone.”

We need more artists like Chance.
