We're at the point where if the first three words of a story are "Chance the Rapper," we know we're about to smile. His latest blessing was conjuring up a rare appearance from Dave Chappelle in Chicago

Chance, along with Social Works Inc. and the Chicago Public Library, present a free open mic event for young Chicago creatives called Open Mike.

Monday's installment featured a surprise Chappelle cameo with some inspiring words for the youth, as well as some thoughts on the recent immigration legislation.
