Chance the Rapper announced on Instagram that he is taking an International Sabbatical to become a better example to his family and to get closer to God.
“I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the word of God, which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ, but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible”, wrote Chance on his Instagram announcement.
The rapper also vowed to be cigarette free and to read at least 4-5 books of the Bible. It seems as though this journey was inspired by the birth of his nephew Charlie Matthew Bennett. We can’t wait to see what Chance brings to the table musically and philanthropically after his sabbatical is up.
