Lyft/YouTube

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.

The amount of frivolous personal complaints seems to have hit new levels.

Whether it's complaints from co-workers or customers, nonsense is nonsense. The things I've heard people complain about in the workplace boggles my mind.

"Your smile isn't bright enough."

"I didn't feel appreciated."

"The color of your shirt is too loud."

"Your name is offensive."

Redditor InfiniteCalendar1 wanted to hear about some of the drama that's been thrown people's way, so they asked:

"What is the most ridiculous thing someone has filed a complaint against you or someone you know about?"

Death is coming for all of us.

I hate that fact about life, so I do my best to ignore it. But I know it's there. So every once in a while I can't help but wonder about it.

My biggest hope is the end is quick and painless, but some warning would be nice, so I have time to do a few things.

I often ponder what that list of "things" would entail if I was given a warning.

And what if that ending was coming fast? How do you sufficiently spend a few hours wrapping up a life?

Redditor Valleygawd wanted to hear about how we would spend those final, precious moments by asking:

"You have 24 hours left alive, what do you do for your last day on earth?"
