Childish Gambino Chance the Rapper Chicago Freestyle Video

Childish Gambino fans who attended his March 20 show at the Chicago Theatre were treated to appearances by local heroes Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper, who stuck around for an impressive nine-minute freestyle session. While footage of Mensa’s guest spot hasn’t popped up online yet, some enterprising concertgoer filmed the long improv session by Donald Glover and SPIN’s 2013 Rapper of the Year, as well as a duet on the Acid Rap cut “Favorite Son.” It’s all aided by Gambino’s live band, not to mention a little help by his younger brother Steve G. Lover III. Check out the freestyle above, and enjoy the references to what is arguably Chicago’s finest export: deep dish pizza.
