Chance the Rapper Gifts 300 Pairs of Jordans to Chicago Students
Three hundred Chicago students will be seeing red today, but only in the literal sense, after Chance the Rapper gave out fresh, ahead-of-release ‘Win Like 96’ 11s to attendees of his monthly OpenMike event.
On the anniversary of the passing of my mentor Brother Mike, @OpenMikeChicago had one of it’s best nights yet. Thanks to @Korporate00 for speaking and thanks to @Jumpman23 for bringing 300 pair of unreleased 11s for the young creatives. Until next year... POWER TO THE PEOPLE...— Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) December 5, 2017
The event, created in honour of Chance’s late friend Mike Hawkins, provides high school students with a platform to perform, 'share, express, and network with like-minded individuals.' And this month, 300 young creatives left with crispy fresh Jays - for many, their first ever pair.
The giveaway was unexpected and met with screams when the wall of Jordan boxes was revealed.
