As fans wait to hear what Big Sean and Chance The Rapper have been cooking up in the studio, the “Living Single” collaborators decided to give back to the community on Monday (April 2) at Chance’s SocialWorks program and OpenMike night in Chicago. The Detroit native popped up to the surprise of many students to perform his two biggest smashes to date including the Grammy-nominated “Bounce Back” and “IDFWU.”
Chano hosts the youth empowerment event every month to inspire creative kids within a safe space to attack their dreams in the arts and entertainment world. In the videos below, Sean Don appears on stage sending the crowd into a frenzy, before going on to rap his Billboard-charting hits as fans belt out lyrics with the 30-year-old G.O.O.D. Music MC. The I Decided rapper is also very charitable in his own right, through his Sean Anderson Foundation he benefits a plethora of causes including the United Negro College Fund and UNICEF.
Chano thanked Sean for the assist on Twitter Monday (April 2). “Thank you so much @BigSean for that historic performance and thank you Justin Holiday for your kind donation to @SocialWorks_Chi today at our 28TH SUCCESSFUL @OpenMikeChicago THIS IS WHERE I STARTED THIS IS WHERE WE ALL START POWER TO THE PEOPLE,” Chance wrote. Big Sean then swiftly responded by teasing a later studio session between the duo. “It’s a honor man!!! U lit,” Sean tweeted back. “Keep shining cause the world needs more light! I’ll see you at the studio tonight tho, aye!!!”
