Chance the Rapper acted as the grand marshal for Chicago's big parade!

Barack Obama congratulated Chance The Rapper during a free concert in Chicago last night (August 12).

"We want to make sure that they are ready for going back to school. I did it once and I ended up being President, so you never know what might happen".

Chance the Rapper's charity, SocialWorks, and Brooklyn-based backpack company STATE bags reportedly donated 30,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to Chicago students at the parade, the news outlet reported, adding that the rapper also handed out free tickets to his concert. "We want to make sure that we are nurturing and attentive and encouraging and loving the next generation of leaders all around the city of Chicago". "I wanted to make sure I can identify all those teachers that support our youth and build our children up, all those fathers that are out here with their families, the cornerstones of their houses, bringing their families out-I want to make sure I can identify y'all so my people can get you some free tickets".
