Shadow Spotlight: Chance the Rapper

April 10 / 17 Hello, everyone! It’s that time again for Shadow Spotlight and it’s on Chance the Rapper. Born Chancelor Bennett, Chance the Rapper resume adds singer, songwriter record producer, and philanthropist. Coming from Chicago’s South Side neighborhood of West Chatham, in 2011 the rapper recorded his first full-length mixtape, titled 10 Day or #10Day.

Editor’s Note….April 2017

April 3 / 17 Vol. 5 / #4 Hi! We’re now in the fourth month of 2017. Spring Break is over and now it’s time for a renewal of the mind. The creative mind.           Shadowbox is now Shadowboxerinc. There have been changes going on with the site and expect to see more in the following months ahead. I’ve been thinking about adding a page or post where you can feature your artwork, stories, and poetry. Some sort of thing like that. Events that are featured this month: 4Heads Governor’s Island Art Fair 2017, Literature events, conferences, MoMA, New Music for this month, and much more. Chance the Rapper is this month’s Shadow Spotlight. We’re still traveling through the state of California for @ The Event, but you’ll have to drop by to see where the next stop is. More changes, more surprises. April showers……                                                     …
