The Internet Is Rejoicing After Chance the Rapper's Statement on Marijuana Legalization

We need an encore from the 23-year-old Humanitarian Award recipient.

Published June 25, 2017

Chance the Rapper deserves every bit of praise and honor that accompanied his 2017 Humanitarian Award presented to him on the 2017 BET Awards stage.

Also nabbing a W for Best New Artist, Chance has been profoundly active on the community scene of his Chicago hometown, lending a helping hand of donations, surprising students at local public schools and opening up new ways for students to break into the music industry. But these admirable moves don’t even cover half of the 23-year-old hip-hop star’s charitable contributions that he holds closest to his heart. So when he got on stage to send a shout-out and declare a bold statement about freeing those who have been incarcerated on marijuana charges before America legalizes it, the internet is holding Chance close to their hearts as well.

See his full speech and how it hilariously lifted fans to cloud nine in the posts below.
