Chicago’s Chance The Rapper and Childish Gambino are set to take over the upcoming annual Governors Ball festival.

Chance and Gambino are just two of a flurry of star-studded musicians heading out to the June music event.


Last year, bad weather ultimately prematurely ended things for headliner Kanye West.

Chance hopped on Instagram Monday (January 2) and hinted at something possibly brewing with Childish.


Last fall, Chance credited Glover for putting him up on some entertainment biz game.

“Donald Glover told me when I was, like, 19 to hire a business manager. He said it was the smartest 5 percent he ever gave up, and I agree, just in terms of structure and planning. That same year I was chilling with Jill Scott, and she asked me how I was dealing with my finances. Then she broke down to me how I should delegate money to my family, to my own needs, to my craft and, of course, to my taxes.” (Billboard)

A few days ago, Chance shocked Twitter followers by announcing an interest in moving to New Zealand.
