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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
