Chance The Rapper Pops Up as an Answer on ‘Jeopardy!’
You know you made it when you become an answer on Jeopardy! Chance The Rapper got this unique honor on a new episode of the long-running game show, which you can view in the above clip. Chance was the answer to the $1200 question, "In 2016, this disciple of Kanye West released his Coloring Book mixtape."
Chance's inclusion on Jeopardy! comes after he wowed viewers on the final Saturday Night Live episode of 2016. The Chicago MC performed “Finish Line/Drown” with Noname and “Same Drugs” on the iconic sketch show.
While Chance had a lot of fun this year, he will be addressing a more serious subject in 2017. The "No Problem" rapper will speak about civil rights at the People’s Inauguration, a special event organized by the Youth and College division of the NAACP.
“We are faced with a moral and ethical crisis during this critical time in our nation’s history after the election of Donald J. Trump,” said Stephen Green, director of the NAACP Youth & College Division. “This moment calls for young leaders to gather together and develop a strategy to protect the human and civil rights of all Americans through nonviolent resistance.”
The rally is scheduled to take place on Jan. 21, one day after the inauguration of President-elect Trump. The event, which is part of the #StayWokeAndFight initiative, will be held at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Chance's involvement is not surprising since his work is highly regarded by the NAACP. The young star recently received four nominations for the 2017 NAACP Image Awards.
