Did Chance the Rapper Cancel His Tour for Kanye West?

Did Chance the Rapper Cancel His Tour for Kanye West?

He's keeping his "big brother" in his prayers.

Published November 23, 2016

While it has been reported that a still-hospitalized Kanye West is "doing much better," several people in his inner circle are still on standby to see how they can support him during this difficult time. This also includes Chance the Rapper.

The Chi-town rapper has been vocal about expressing his concern for his "big brother," even extending a prayer during a recent interview. However, it appears as though the rapper has now gone above and beyond to be there for Ye, reportedly canceling the remainder of his European tour.

The news that Chance won't be completing his "Magnificent Coloring Book" tour broke earlier today (Nov. 23) with the promotion company issuing a statement on the rapper's behalf.

"It is with regret that Chance the Rapper has to cancel the remainder of his European tour due to personal reasons," the statement reads. "He sends his apologies for this and looks forward to returning to Europe in 2017."

While citing "personal reasons" could really mean anything, it's safe to assume Chance made this decision on West's behalf, considering their tight-knit relationship.

According to his website, he will resume touring on December 29 in New Zealand.
