On Friday, July 7, Chance the Rapper told Wireless festival goers that they were the “coolest crowd” he’s played in a “long time” before he closed his set in London.
The 24-year-old rapper took to the main stage at Finsbury Park sharp at 8:55 p.m. and worked his way through his tracks from 2016’s award-winning Coloring Book before he told his fans they were his favorite. He said, “I appreciate you having me London … You should be gassed up and you should be very cocky you’re from here … the city has beautiful architecture.” He added, “You’ve been the coolest crowd I’ve played in a long time.”
The crowd went wild as the hunk, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, performed renditions of Kanye West‘s “Ultralight Beam” and DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One,” before treating them to his hits “All We Got”, “Same Drugs” and “Mix Tape.” The surprises didn’t stop there, as the rapper was later joined on stage by Francis And The Lights for the 2016 remix “May I Have This Dance.”
Chance, who sported a beige cap emblazoned with the number three, then finished things off by promising his young fans he would return to London “soon.”
