Chance the Rapper net worth

By Spear's

American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and philanthropist, Chance the Rapper has an estimated net worth of $9 million.

Born April 16, 1993, Chance the Rapper, also known as Chancelor Bennett grew up in the middle-class neighborhood of West Chatham on Chicago’s South Side.
Bennett started his music at a young age. In his first year at Jones College Prep High School, he formed the hip-hop duo Instrumentality with a friend. Many the rapper’s earliest performances took place at the YOUmedia Lyricist Loft at Harold Washington Library in Chicago.

How did Chance the Rapper (Bennett) make his millions?

At Jones College Prep High School, some of his instructors disparaged his yearnings to end up noticeably an artist. Taking after a 10-day suspension in mid 2011 amid his senior year, Bennett recorded his initially full-length extend, a mixtape titled 10 Day (otherwise called #10Day).

In December 2011, he discharged a tune titled “Windows”, and openly reported his 10 Day extend.

In February 2012, Bennett was highlighted as one of Complex magazine’s “10 New Chicago Rappers to Watch Out For. He later discharged the mixtape on April 3, 2012. The mixtape was generally welcomed locally and helped Bennett make associations with makers, for example, Chuck Inglish, Kenny Jame$, and Blended Babies. The mixtape snatched the consideration of Forbes magazine, which included it in the distribution’s Cheap Tunes section.

Apart from his solo career, he is also a member of the Chicago collective Save Money (along with frequent collaborator Vic Mensa), and has worked as the lead vocalist for the band The Social Experiment. They released the widely lauded album Surf in May 2015.

In May 2016, Bennett released his third mixtape Coloring Book to further critical acclaim. It earned him three Grammy awards, including for Best Rap Album. Coloring Book was the first streaming-only album to ever receive and win a Grammy nomination.
