Ever wondered what it'd be like to have a Grammy winning rapper drive you around in a Lyft? Chance the Rapper is here to answer.


In a joint effort with Lyft, Chance the Rapper, born Chancelor Jonathan Bennet, took the wheel to raise awareness for a cause near to his heart.

In a video posted to the ride share giant's YouTube page, Chance begins by stating he's there in support of Chicago Public Schools and the Social Works charity. Lyft is instituting a program in the area to encourage riders to round up their fares in support of the arts and music institutions.

Of course, that meant Chance had to become an undercover Lyft driver to get these super fans going.

Chance introduces himself in the video as "John," adorned in beanie and shades to cover up his face. He plays it cool, asking the passengers where they're from, how their day's going, and so on. Right from the get-go, the 25-year old rapper starts dropping hints about his true identity.

"I never use GPS. They say, 'Never leave things up to chance.' I say, "Always leave things up to chance.' You know?" he says at one point.

The rider chuckles, and goes back to staring out the window.

He doesn't stop there, though.

At different times he references a few of his notable hits, claiming he wants a statue built in his name, then another time slyly rewords lyrics from his Coloring Book hit "All Night."

"I just don't like when they spill fries on the seat. Sometimes people lie on the seat. Fart on the seat."

For a few lucky riders, "John" shared his dream to one day become a rapper or poet of some kind. Sensing their driver wants to share his "gift" with them, they listened as Chance attempted to "badly" spit rhymes.

Not everyone was fooled, though. "What's your name?" the rapper asked one passenger. After shaking his hand in disbelief, he turned to buckle himself up in shock.

"Wh-whoa," the passenger said.

"Whoa what?" Chance said.

"Do you know who you are?" the passenger repeated, still in awe of the man driving him around.

The video ends with Chance removing his beanie and blowing the minds of all his riders.

"I'm kind of f-cked up, right now," said one passenger.

Another said, "This is the coolest thing I've ever been part of."

Chance ended his mind-rocking experience by reminding the passengers that by donating to the Chance Fund on Lyft, they can help Chicago Public Schools.

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
