As Chance The Rapper approaches a new year he has decided to begin the year focusing on his faith. Chance The rapper went to social media earlier this month to announce that he will be taking a sabbatical—leaving the country to learn the Word of God, so he can pass it along to his newborn nephew Charlie Matthew.
Chance posted a photo on Instagram of him holding his nephew, while looking into his eyes. The photo was posted in black and white. Chance The Rapper wrote, ” I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with,” Chance began the lengthy post. “I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible. we all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it.”
“So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here and I need to be able to give my nephew Charlie Matthew the knowledge and tools to F**K YALL UP,” he continued. “Lol but seriously he’s the first boy of the next line and he needs his uncle to be educated. So don’t bother me, ill be back soon enough, with five or more books from bible read. Oh yeah and cigarette free.”
