Chance the Rapper was born Chancelor Bennett on April 16, 1993. Hailing from West Chatham neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, he considered a career in music throughout his high-school years. He used a ten-day suspension during his senior year to record his debut mixtape, "10 Days", which was uploaded in 2012 and was well received locally.
The mixtape helped Chance make connections with producers such as Chuck Inglish, Kenny Jame$ and Blended Babies. It also grabbed the attention of Forbes magazine, which featured it in the publication's Cheap Tunes column, and Childish Gambino who then asked Chance to join his 2012 tour as opening act.
