Chancelor Bennett, better known as Chance The Rapper is notorious for supplying the world with free music. He has continuously proven his dedication to improving the streets of Chicago through donations, raising awareness, and supplying the youth with inspirational Gospel Rap (mostly through his latest album; Coloring Book) . His unique style of rapping has also earned him features with artist such as Kanye West, Kehlani, and Skrillex. Chance even helped produce multiple songs on Kanye’s The Life of Pablo.
So what is The Rapper’s net worth today?
Well, the release of his new album, Coloring Book, definitely created lots of buzz in the rap community. But as I mentioned above, Chance The Rapper is known for releasing music to the general public for free. And although Coloring Book was supposed to be a Apple Music exclusive, many people, such as myself, still managed to download the album/mixtape for free from music sites such as Datpiff. Chance supplying his music for free makes a large portion of his revenue being earned from live performances and the sale of merchandise. Resulting in him missing out on a lot of capital.

A 10-day suspension during his senior year of high school sparked his musical career. While serving his suspension, Chance worked on a series of songs which he later released as a mixtape appropriately titled 10 Day. The 14 song mixtape featured popular tracks such as “Windows”, “Juke Juke” and my personal favorite, “Hey Ma”.

Musically, 2014 was a relatively quiet year for the Chicago based rapper. Rather than being active in the booth, Chance took to the streets. The rapper spent the majority of his time cleaning the streets of Chi Town, eventually awarding him the title “Outstanding Youth of the Year” by Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
