Chance The Rapper has announced that he is going on his first sabbatical to grow closer to God. Following the birth of his nephew, Charlie Matthew son of Taylor Bennett, Chance has decided that it is time he expands his religious knowledge by taking a couple days to himself to read the bible in depth. The musician and father wrote, “I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with” which he said he would like to change for the next generation of Bennett children. He also revealed that he is quitting cigarettes and many celebrities took to the comments to praise his decision.

We wish you nothing but the best, Chance!

I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible. we all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it. So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here and I need to be able to give my nephew Charlie Matthew the knowledge and tools to FUCK YALL UP. Lol but seriously he’s the first boy of the next line and he needs his uncle to be educated. So dont bother me, ill be back soon enough, with five or more books from bible read. Oh yeah and cigarette free 🙏🏾🎄🚭
