Chance the Rapper Brings Shades of 'Willy Wonka' & 'Edward Scissorhands' to Coloring World in Chicago

To celebrate the release of Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book, the Chicago rapper and his team threw four consecutive parties on Saturday (May 21). Attendees purchased $40 tickets for one of four different time slots, except the 8 p.m. show, a 21-and-over event that included complementary Goose Island beer and cost $60 per ticket. A school bus picked up guests at Pulaski International School and headed to a secret location of his Magnificent Color World, which turned out to be the Goose Island Beer Company's barrell warehouse in Humboldt Park.
