I’ve been on Chance The Rapper since about 2013, so I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing his meteoric rise from the beginning.

Over the span of just four short years, Chance has gone from niche Chicago rapper to a bonafide superstar, winning Grammy’s, headlining tours & festivals, and now, he’s performing classics better than the original artists ever did.

Chance, who was one of the headlining acts on Saturday night at Bonnaroo, performed at the festival’s Superjam. Bonnaroo has a Superjam every year, where the headlining acts will join together to perform popular songs.

At this year’s Superjam, Chance covered Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg’s classic “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang’ and Outkast’s seminal banger ‘Hey Ya.’

And in typical Chance fashion, it was a grand, over-the-top, beautiful performance, and in all likelihood was the highlight of Bonnaroo.

Chance the Rapper — 24 years old and on top of the world.
