On Friday, the MC tweeted out a "press release" announcing that he bought tickets all day so Chicagoans could go see the new film: "It's Lit."
By now, Chance The Rapper is known as much for his community works in his beloved Chicago as he is his chart-topping music. On Friday morning (Oct. 13), Lil Chano From 79th tweeted to his followers a screencap of an iPhone note he called a "press release," which he had typed up himself regarding the new movie Marshall.
"Chance The rapper Press release FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE," it reads. "I bought all the tickets all day to go see Marshall at the movie theatre on 87th and the one on Roosevelt. Go see Marshall today for free. Come to the one at 3. It's lit. I don't usually write my own press releases."
Marshall tells the story of Thurgood Marshall, the country's first African-American Supreme Court justice. The biopic focuses on one of his most renowned cases as a lawyer when he represented a black man accused of raping a white woman. It opened in theaters Friday.
