Chance the Rapper & Frank Ocean Bring Parents to White House State Dinner
President Barack Obama is hosting is final State Dinner Tuesday (Oct. 18) night and from the looks of it, he's going out with bang.
Chance is on his way to becoming a regular at the White House after visiting earlier this year with other rappers and musicians to discuss discuss criminal justice reform. He's also a notable favorite of the Obama family and will be back Dec. 1 as well, perform at this year’s annual National Christmas Tree Lightning.
Chance's date for the event is his father, Ken Bennett, who served as a deputy assistant to Obama when he was a senator in Illinois. The Chicago emcee posted a photo of the two of them, thanking his dad for raising him right.
Meanwhile, Ocean showed up with checkered slip-on Vans with his mother Katonya Breaux along as a date. Breaux tweeted that she feels so "blessed to have a son that includes me in his once in a lifetime events," touting that she had just hugged the First Lady.
