In February, Chance The Rapper was named the Grand Marshal of the 2017 Bud Bilikin Parade in Chicago. Last night on Instagram, the quietly stoked artist shared a video discussing the honor. He will "put together" the event, which started in 1929 as a celebration of Chicago's underprivileged youth and is now the second largest parade in the country. It starts at 10 a.m. on August 12, 2017. "We finna turn up," Chance said in the video, while listening to "My Friends (We Get Turnt Up)" by Mr. Hotspot.
