Chance The Rapper had a breakout year in 2016, and a huge part of it was the success of his Magnificent Coloring World Tour. Now, the tour lives on in a new documentary.
The tour accompanied Chance’s brilliant third mixtape Coloring Book, which became the first stream-only album to land on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. He also appeared on the highlight of Kanye West‘s album The Life Of Pablo, scored an endorsement deal with Kit Kat, and for the Magnificent Coloring World Festival, hosted the first festival at Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field. He also performed everywhere from the ESPY Awards to The White House.
Just this week, he was nominated for seven Grammy Awards after prompting the Recording Academy to change their rules to allow stream-only albums.
The documentary revisits highlights of Chance’s historic year: performing with Kanye, shooting the music video for “How Great” with Jay Electronica, and hanging out with Katy Perry and Macklemore backstage.
