Chance the Rapper Hospitalized, Cancels Coachella Show

Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper has canceled his Coachella gig after falling ill.

The Chicago MC was scheduled to play the main stage during the second weekend of the festival in Indio, Calif. on Sunday. Just hours before his 3:10 p.m. set time, his management released a statement on Twitter informing fans that he had been hospitalized.

“On behalf of @chancetherapper and our entire team- We sincerely regret to have to cancel our 2nd weekend at coachella,” said his management.

A photo posted to his Instagram account (and later deleted) showed the 21-year-old in a hospital bed wearing his Coachella wristbands with the caption, “Pray for my boy chance.”

His team did not elaborate on why he was hospitalized, but he is expected to make a full recovery. “Chance fell ill on Friday night & was admitted to the hospital today- Doctors & family are with him & he is expected to make a full recovery.”

They also thanked his fans for their support. “Thank you for the prayers and support during this time, Chance, his team and family deeply appreciate it.”

Last weekend, Chance performed at Coachella and brought out Justin Bieber during his 45-minute set.

    Drinking and drugs I’m sure. Isn’t that what it always is with these young “rappers”?!?!?

    @A.J Minner, look at you making stereotypes. That’s just what we need more of. And even if he did, so what?

    @Lionheart, “and even if he did, so what?” – pretty much sums up why the younger generations are so fcked up.

    All these comments are so ignorant, you all obviously know nothing about Chance and his music. Hope he gets well soon, so talented.

    How are the comments about drugs and alcohol ignorant when he eagerly invites and paints that persona of himself? Hope he gets better and it’s not a big deal.
