Chance the Rapper has occasional events called ‘Open Mike’ in Chicago, where local teenagers can showcase their talent. Every now and then a big-name guest shows up, like Kanye West.
Well, on Monday Dave Chappelle made a surprise appearance. He joked around a lot, but also gave the kids some advice . . . like, quote, “We need young artists out there. A lot of people come up to me and they say ‘Dave, you tell it like it is.’ No, I don’t. Never did. I don’t KNOW what it is. I tell it like it FEELS like.
“People know so much information. But they forget what things feel like . . . the job of the artist is to remind them of themselves. Get ’em thinking again. Get ’em feeling again . . . this is important times.”
