Chance the Rapper 

When: Fri., Oct. 7, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $85-$241



Few albums in 2016 have exuded joy like Chance the Rapper's May mixtape, Coloring Book. After overcoming a struggle with Xanax and becoming a new father, the twenty-three-year-old Chicago native pulled together an impressive roster of collaborators—among them, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Kirk Franklin, and even Justin Bieber—for a record about keeping your head up and trying hard when the going gets tough. On songs like "Blessings" and "Finish Line/Drown," Chance leans all the way into gospel influences as he reckons with his faith. Coloring Book was a bold bright spot in a rotten year, and it looks like Chance will only continue to shine. Francis and the Lights, another ascendant hip-hop artist whose recent work includes a collaboration with West and Justin Vernon as well as a spot on Coloring Book, opens.
