Chance The Rapper has reportedly purchased a luxurious mansion in the suburbs of Chicago for $2.3 million.
The massive, 9,251-square-foot home is packed with amenities, including a sauna, a home movie theater, a recreation room and more, according to BET. The five-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom mansion also includes a pool, a library and a four-car garage, among other impressive features. The Chicago Tribune reports that the 28-year-old award-winning rapper, from the West Chatham neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago, purchased the Bannockburn home with his wife, Kirsten. Chance The Rapper’s mother, a local realtor, represented the couple in the deal. The previous homeowners paid $2.6 million for the property in 2004, which HipHopDX notes is a short drive away from NBA legend Michael Jordan’s estate.
Chance The Rapper has stayed heavily involved in his hometown amid his success, including through Social Works, a nonprofit organization he founded that works to “empower the youth through the arts, education, and civic engagement.” Social Works has helped Chicagoans by hosting free programs for kids, distributing food to families around the holidays, and more:
“Since 2016, SocialWorks has created 5 initiatives that present youth the opportunity to learn and act on their passions. SocialWorks’ programming focuses on education, mental health, homelessness, and performing and literary arts – directly affecting thousands of youth yearly. Through the initiatives...SocialWorks hopes to inspire creativity, build dreams, and advocate for youth success in all its forms.”
