Chance The Rapper Explains Illness, May Need Surgery

Last weekend we learned that hip-hop phenom Chance The Rapper had been hospitalized after falling ill and thus was unable to repeat his triumphant set from Coachella’s first weekend during the festival’s second iteration. Last night Chance’s Twitter posted a letter from his manager detailing the circumstances of the illness and the prognosis. In short, a 104-degree fever and tonsillitis left Chance in a Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital bed unable to speak. His performances this week have been canceled as well, and he may face surgery to correct the throat problems. Read the letter below.

Get well soon, Chance. The sooner you can get back to work on (Acid Rap follow-up) The Social Experiment, the better.
