It looks the Chicago native has been given the Chance at exploring his other talents.

Chance the Rapper has been having a great 2019, and from the looks of things it’s about to get even better after being signed to a talent agency. United Talent Agency (UTA) will work with Chance regarding global touring, acting, brand partnerships, producing, licensing, books, charity work, and more. Earlier this month, the Grammy-winning hip-hop artist announced the delay of his tour to focus on his new life of marriage and fatherhood to two beautiful children. It looks like the young rapper was able to recharge and gain some clarity by focusing on what’s really important, his family.

I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work. When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli. I apologize because I know how many people were counting on seeing me soon, but I hope you’ll understand and forgive me in time. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th and you can still get tix or your refund if you are unavailable at chanceraps.com & a few of the shows are still being rescheduled as well so stay tuned. I love you guys AND LITERALLY CANT WAIT FOR U TO WITNESS THIS SHOW 🙏🏾🙏🏾 SIDENOTE: 9/28 CHICAGO AT UNITED CENTER IS STILL ON AS WELL AS “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FEST” “IHEART MUSIC FEST” & “MIAMI BEACH POP FEST”! ❤️

Although this is a major deal for the “Hot Shower” rapper, Chance is no stranger to success. His very first studio album, The Big Day, made a splash this summer as No. 2 on the Billboard 200 charts. Chance even dabbled in the television/film world with executive producing of Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe: The Movie, and basketball documentary, Shot in the Dark. Alongside his Entertainment achievements, Chance has been a huge advocate for change in our communities with his SocialWorks foundation. A charity that empowers the youth with a focus on education, mental health, homelessness, performing, and literary arts.
