CHICAGO, IL – Plastered across the front page of Wednesday’s (March 8) Chicago Sun-Times was a headline that read, “Child Support Spat Could Hurt Chance the Rapper’s Image,” a scathing story written by columnist Mary Mitchell. The article comes a mere four days after Chano generously donated $1 million to Chicago Public Schools in hopes of helping the children of Chicago (who he called the city’s “most valuable resource”) get the education they deserve.

Mitchell writes, “[Chano’s] messy split from the mother of his 18-month-old daughter threatens to overshadow the positive vibes created by his $1 million donation to the Chicago Public Schools. Chance, whose given name is Chancelor Bennett, is embroiled in a child-support fight in Cook County court, with new documents in the case filed this week.”

She also downplayed his philanthropic donation and wrote, “$1 million won’t make a dent in the $215 million deficit the Chicago Public Schools is facing” and then accused him of coming to the aid of other people’s children, but not his own. “You can’t hand out money to benefit children you don’t know and come off looking like you are being stingy when it comes to your own child,” she said.
