Whether he was claiming “victory in honor of the Lord” at the Grammys or pledging millions of dollars to Chicago public schools, Chance the Rapper has been very open about his Christian faith and the influence it has on his life and career. In a new interview with Ebony magazine, the 24-year-old rapper shares how his relationship with God has kept him on the straight and narrow despite the temptations of Hollywood.
“There are a lot of spaces where you feel like God isn’t around,” Chance, born Chancellor Bennett, told Ebony of his life in Los Angeles. “I got some vibes. You have to listen and be aware of your discernment… You’ll feel it… You just have to listen to God.”
This isn’t the first time the three-time Grammy winner has spoken about his relationship with God. During one of his Grammy acceptance speeches in February, he praised the Lord for his talent and his family.
“Glory be to God,” Chance proclaimed. “I claim this victory in honor of the Lord. I want to thank God for my mother and father who supported me since I was young.”
