In a 50th anniversary audio series, Chance the Rapper will take listeners on a tour of his hip-hop career through the Chicago Apple store.
At the Apple store on Michigan Avenue in his hometown, Chance the Rapper will talk about how to become a successful rap artist, the technology company said on Monday. During an event organized by Today at Apple, which provides free in-store educational sessions for devices and programs, he will make an appearance at the retail location on Wednesday.
The Grammy-winning singer plans to talk about the influence hip-hop has had on his life, his foray into independent music, and the 10th anniversary of his much praised “Acid Rap” mixtape. He will speak with Apple Music’s worldwide editorial head of hip-hop and R&B, Ebro Darden.
The rapper Chance the Rapper stated that he wants to honor the way that rap “empowered a generation and gave voice to the voiceless.”
Rappers, producers, and DJs will all be present at Today at Apple events throughout the months of August and September. The 20-episode audio series Hip-Hop DNA on Apple Music served as inspiration for the sessions.
Conversations with the rappers Rapsody, Lola Brooke, and LaRussell as well as the producers Just Blaze and Harry Fraud will be part of other sessions. Racial equity and a live competition for digital art will be discussed in other sessions.
The gatherings will take place at the San Francisco, Chicago, and New York Apple stores.
Apple’s senior director of retail engagement and marketing, Tracey Hannelly, said, “We can’t wait to welcome consumers and music lovers to find out about the creative methods of these incredible artists.”
