Have you ever had a close family member or friend that has been murdered? Even if you haven’t I’m pretty sure the thought of it is terrifying enough.

Recently over here at IzzyVision, fellow Chicago native Chance The Rapper has been grabbing our attention. Much like the way he has already captured the rest of the music world’s attention ever since 2013 and earlier.  I realize that we are hell of late at realizing the excellence of Chance, and i must admit that his wins at the 2017 Grammy awards is what made me take notice. But it is always better late than never right? Exactly! I’m here now so that’s all that matters. Anyway, let’s get back to the celebration.

Chance is a 23 year old black male who is from the West Chatham neighborhood, on Chicago’s South Side. Anybody that’s familiar with Chicago’s neighborhoods can tell you that West Chatham is not an easy place to rise out of. You can really fall into a lot of bad situations over there, and your road to success can be snatched from you in a split second. And to just be able to rise above growing up in that type of environment and come out as humble and caring as Chance is, Is worthy of a Celebration all on it’s own. But Chance deserves to be celebrated for much more than just that. Or even just his music for that matter.
