New Tour Will Support Chance’s 2016 Mixtape, “Coloring Book”
The string of fall 2016 tour dates follows the release of Chance the Rapper’s fourth mixtape, “Coloring Book.” The new effort was released on May 13, and it became Chance’s first album to land on the Billboard 200 albums chart--an impressive feat for the independent artist.
In typical Chance fashion, “Coloring Book” features a bevy of guest stars, including internationally renowned rappers and local artists, like the Chicago Children’s Choir. One of the most popular songs on the album features rap icons 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne. You can watch the official video for their collaboration, “No Problem,” below.
Like “Coloring Book,” the upcoming Chance the Rapper tour will feature a number of special guests. At the time of the tour announcement, however, those supporting acts have not yet been confirmed.
