Chance the Rapper is giving an incredible gift to the public school system he grew up in.
The Coloring Book rapper held a press conference at Wescott Elementary School on Chicago's South Side on Monday, where he revealed his $1 million donation to the city's Public School Foundation.

According to Chicago's WBEZ, the money will be used to support arts education in schools.
"This check is a call to action," the musician said during the speech, imploring businesses city-wide to support the school system.

It makes sense that Chicago schools would be an issue so close to Chance's heart, given that the rapper is essentially a success story of his hometown schools.
During this year's GRAMMY Awards, Chance's Coloring Book mixtape became the first-ever streaming-only album to win an award.
