Chance the Rapper continues to be the most lovable MC in the game today, even by the ladies of The View

No stranger to television at all hours of the day, Chance stopped by The View yesterday to talk music, religion and the some of the major issues facing the world today. In front of an enthusiastic studio audience, Chance gave props to Lebron James and Stevie Wonder, discussed whether or not he's a "Gospel Rapper" and went on to give the definitive explanation for his signature "3" hat.

There are enough gems here for both newer fans and longtime Chance supporters. While he unfortunately didn't perform, we did get some fun tidbits about his collaboration process, and got to see his face light-up when discussing his daughter. The appearance was to promote Chance's current tour, whose St. Paul stop we named one of the best of the year.
