Grammy Award-winning artist Chance the Rapper rode through the streets of his Chicago hometown as grand marshal of the city's back-to-school parade.
The 24-year-old rapper sat atop a white convertible waving at the crowds during Saturday's (Aug. 12) Bud Billiken Parade , which welcomes Chicago children back for the new school year.
It's not the first time Chance has been involved with Chicago Public Schools. Earlier this year he donated $1 million. He was also was part of an effort to distribute thousands of free backpacks stuffed with school supplies at the parade. He's also urged politicians to help the schools.
