Fortune magazine released their yearly ranking of 50 of the World’s Greatest Leaders today. Chance the Rapper came in at No. 46 on the magazine’s list.
Fortune magazine credited Chance’s philanthropist endeavors and independent music hustle as to the reason for being named in the list.
“Chance is also a political force as an anti-violence campaigner in his hometown of Chicago, and he may only be getting started,” the blurb read. “His latest salvo: A $1 million donation to Chicago Public Schools, after he called Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner to task for what Chance called Rauner’s neglect of educational funding. The cash will go towards arts and after-school programming —and even set off a chain reaction, with Seattle Seahawk Michael Bennett inspired to donate his endorsement money to worthy causes.”
