On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Chance the Rapper hinted a the next phase of his career in entertainment.
Time and time again we have seen athletes that want to become musicians, rappers that want to become actors, and actors that want to become rappers. Rarely do we see anyone who wants to crossover into stand-up comedy. But it sounds like that is exactly what Chance the Rapper wants to do.
At only 26, Chance the Rapper is already an accomplished musician. The Chicago native is not even 10 years into his career yet, bu has three Grammy Awards to his name. His 2019 album The Big Day debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart.
Still, like any talented artist, Chance doesn’t seem content with being just a rapper. Yes, he can also put activist and actor on his resume but he is still looking to do more.
In what may surprise some fans, it sounds like Chance the Rapper’s next goal is to become a world famous comedian. He explained those aspirations during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night.
It is highly suggested you watch the entire interview between Chance and Jimmy Kimmel. You would be hard pressed to find a more positive, upbeat, and naturally funny person in the music industry.
With that being said, it doesn’t sound like too big of a stretch for Chance to become a comedian. He’s already been on stage at the Laugh Factory in Chicago so the first step is already out of the way. Trying to making people laugh and rapping on stage are two very different things but if anyone can do it, it’s Chance the Rapper.
It also doesn’t hurt that he revealed these plans on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.Kimmel is referenced in one of Chance’s song so the rapper may be f an of the late night host. Also, Kimmel recently opened up a comedy club in Las Vegas that could be a potential venue for a Chance comedy tour.
Chance seems pretty confident in his comedic chops. Saturday Night Live fans can back him on that after watching his successful turns first as a musical guest and then as host in 2017.
