R. Kelly Was Chance The Rapper’s Surprise Guest At Lollapalooza

It’s becoming more of an issue to include R. Kelly on your festival lineup because of his past sexual abuse charges — just last week, Ohio’s Fashion Meets Music Festival cut the R&B singer as a headliner after bands and promoters began to drop out because of his involvement. That controversy didn’t stop Chance The Rapper from bringing him out during his late-night set at Lollapalooza on Sunday. The whole performance acted as Chance’s love letter to his hometown — “tonight, it’s for Chicago,” he tweeted — and, in addition to Kelly, he also brought out local rapper Vic Mensa, who had done a set the day before. Kelly performed “The World’s Greatest,” “Bump N’ Grind,” and “Ignition (Remix)” while Chance mostly stuck to the Acid Rap tracks that put him on the map. Watch some fan video from the show below.
