Chance The Rapper Mentioned in New Spider-Man Comic
It's safe to say Chance The Rapper might be having one of the best years of anyone in 2017, with his popularity is reaching new heights. After having won himself three Grammys for his Coloring Book project and fighting hard for his home city, Chicago, the "No Problem" hitmaker has earned himself a mention in the newest Spider-Man comic.
According to Andrew Barber at Fakeshore Drive, Chance was used in the strip as a reference to prove that one of the older characters in the book was "young and hip," claiming he could answer any questions about the Chicago MC to prove so. The rapper isn't featured as a character in the story, but to get a mention is a pretty big deal in the iconic series.
This isn't the first dealing Chance has had with a major comic book, as Marvel released a series of variant covers of their comic characters imitating famous album covers last year, with Coloring Book being one of them. Nova was drawn to be in the same pose that Chance portrayed on the original cover, with plenty of crossover fans being able to get their hands on both.
