Check Out Our Experience at Chance The Rapper’s “Magnificent Coloring World”

posted by Ellena Rodriguez May 21, 2016


Talk about an experience.. Just this past Wednesday, Chicago’s finest, Chance The Rapper, announced via Twitter that he had a surprise for his hometown fans. With no information being announced with it, tickets immediately sold out for his day-long event.

When it came to the day of the “Magnificent Coloring World” event, I was stoked yet curious to see what Chance had in store for us. I arrived at the meeting destination where there were already several fans lined up with their Sox and Chance 3 gear ready to go. After getting our wristbands, we bought some merch and hopped on one of the many school buses that would take us to some mysterious warehouses; yet another reason to be baffled before finding out what this was all about… We were all escorted into a dark warehouse where all we saw was a curtain, which soon started playing footage of Chance throughout his life mixed with clips of movies including Tim Burton’s Batman.

The curtain then dropped and everyone was introduced to Chance’s world! It was full of color, fun, and so much to do. From coloring books to bounce houses and inflatable slides, it felt like candy land mixed with a carnival for grownups. All his guests had a variety of things to participate in. Throughout the festivities, everyone was taking photos, dancing, singing, and playing games as his latest mixtape Coloring Book played throughout the entire brewery warehouse. It was a celebration of everything Chicago, everything Chance The Rapper, and everything Coloring Book. As the last track “Blessings” played, we were surprised with a children’s choir that came out to perform the outro for the crowd, and the lines “Are you ready for your blessings?/Are you ready for your miracle?” were the perfect thing to hear as Chance The Rapper himself finally made his triumphant appearance. It was an amazing performance to end such an unforgettable experience.

So, thank you Chano for welcoming us into your Magnificent Coloring World.

 Thanks to Oscar, we both were able to capture some dope footage.

Video: Chance The Rapper – “Everybody’s Something”

posted by Oscar July 30, 2013

The latest Austin Vesely-directed video is Chance The Rapper’s “Everybody’s Something” and it’s straight up Dope. The visuals for the song blend the lyrics with relevant clips (particularly digging the “middle finger Uncle Samuel” and the “we invented Rock before the Stone” scenes), so you see Chano simply performing the track while Vesely employs a layered projection effect that brings to mind the look of the sort of trippy videos shot in the late 60’s and early 70’s (like Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid”).

Check it out above.

Video: Chance the Rapper – Acid Rap Live

posted by Oscar June 3, 2013

Late last month, Memorial Day weekend, Chance The Rapper played two back-to-back sold-out shows in Chicago’s legendary venue, the so-called Metro. Austin Vesely was present to capture some of the best moments and he’s put together this video. On-stage performance clips were stitched together with behind the scenes shots to give you a good luck into those awesome nights.

I got some clips of his performances from the first night but they look nothing like this, so send your props to Austin Vesely and the rest of the crew for this.

For those of you in NYC, don’t miss his performances at Northside Festival on June 15th and Hot 97’s SOB’s on June 20th.
