Chance the Rapper is known for his generosity and charitable efforts so it makes sense that the rapper would use his own birthday celebration to give back to fans. After extending an invite to fans to attend his upcoming birthday celebration, Chance treated fans to another gift and shared his new playlist "Big Chano: 25 & Alive."

Chance's "Big Chano: 25 & Alive" playlist salutes artists from the past and present and includes a slew of genres Chance draws inspiration from. Known for the gospel influences found in almost all of his musical works, Chance included gospel classics like Fred Hammond's "We're Blessed," Marvin Sapp's "I Believe," and "God's Grace" from Trin-I-Tee.

Chance's fellow Chicagoans Kanye West, G Herbo, and Jeremih also appear on the playlist, along with Drake's recent banger "Nice For What" and the Chance-featuring "Best Life" from Cardi B, who he joined on stage at Coachella over the weekend. 

The "No Problems" rapper is no amateur to curating playlists. In 2016, Chance created a bath time playlist titled "Yup" featuring his favorite shower tunes.

Chance will continue his birthday festivities this Saturday for his Chance the Birthday celebration in his native Chicago. General admission tickets go for $125 and can be purchased here. All proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to Chance's SocialWorks organization.
