Undercover Lyft with Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper is highlighting his efforts to help Chicago Public Schools as the newest driver in Lyft's undercover series. The video was unveiled today (Oct. 15).

With the return of the Undercover Lyft series, Chance appears as a Lyft driver named "John," camouflaged in a beanie and sunglasses. The rapper surprises Chicago residents while talking about music and social work in the city, while throwing in a couple of his iconic lyrics. 

Chance has also partnered up with Lyft's "Round Up & Donate" feature for his The New Chance Arts and Literature Fund, which helps provide a quality education for children in Chicago Public Schools. Lyft's new feature rounds up the ride fare and donates the extra portion to a charity of the rider's choice; riders are able to opt-in and discover the full list of charities involved here.

Joe Jonas and DNCE, DJ Khaled and Demi Lovato have all previously participated in the Undercover Lyft series.
