Chance the Rapper's world domination is almost complete.

Without a cent of record company money, the Chicago artist has managed more than 6 television appearances this year, culminating with an uplifting performance of "Blessings (Reprise)" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with a little help from Anthony Hamilton, Ty Dolla $ign, D.R.A.M., and Raury. Oh, and he somehow found time to write a jingle for Kit Kat too.

While Chance has already collaborated with H&M and Nike this year, Kit Kat is definitely a left-field choice for a rapper that seems to take special joy in defying convention.

Will Chance take the belt from Andrew W.K. as Kit Kat's coolest spokesperson ever? We'll have to wait and see.
