Chance the Rapper is a huge proponent of education, having recently donated 30,000 backpacks to Chicago students in celebration of back-to-school season. Well, it looks like Lil’ Chano from 79th desires to attain some advanced knowledge himself because he’s on the hunt for higher education!
Specifically, he has his sights set on an HBCU. What’s his choice? Chance took to Twitter to announce his top pick:
I was tryna go to Clark ATL. I'm still tryna go. Like not honorary, the full blown ya dig. Can someone help me sign up— Lil Chano From 79th (@chancetherapper) August 20, 2017
It’s Clark Atlanta Universty! While many colleges have awarded celebrities with honorary degrees, Chance wants to go all in. Basically, he wants the full college experience! I can’t help but think that -- other than his celebrity status -- his community services should warrant him extra credit in the admissions process.
His initial public interest actually resulted in a hilarious Twitter beef when Morehouse’s Twitter account tried to hit Chance with the “wyd?” or “hey, bighead” type tweet.
The AUC is a great place to be. Morehouse is an even better House to call home! Welcome home my brother, we would love to have you in Atl.— Morehouse College (@Morehouse) August 21, 2017
CAU wasn’t having it, though. They weren’t going to let Chance slip through their fingers. So, the school clapped back with:
He said #CAU. Stop the madness.— Clark Atlanta Univ. (@CAU) August 21, 2017
Ha! Let me get my popcorn ready.
Seriously, though, I am thrilled that Chance wants to venture toward higher education! That way, when he’s encouraging higher education to those who look up to them, he can also look the part.
Sending good vibes to you Chance and we can’t wait to see which school you end up with!
What do you think about Chance’s venture into higher education? What school would you like to see him attend?
