Chance the Rapper has pretty diverse taste in music, which can be heard from the range of samples and blending of genres on his The Big Day debut album. The Chicago native woke up on Thursday (Aug. 8) and decided to list his favorite songs of all time in a lengthy Twitter thread. 

The 26-year-old selected plenty of artists spanning different generations. He opted to go with a couple of 50 Cent classics, Elton John's "Your Song," Tupac's "Keep Ya Head Up," some Michael Jackson hits, and showed love to burgeoning rap newcomer Tierra Whack. When all was said and done, there were more than 30 tracks picked by Chance, but a few can't be found on streaming services.

We decided to create a playlist filled with Chano's favorites, which you can give a listen to on Spotify below.
