“I spent all night finishing it. The world is better because of it.”

Chance the Rapper performed in San Diego on Monday night (April 24), kicking off his Be Encouraged Tour.

Chano took to Twitter last week and posted a picture of the tour poster which included the accompanying cities and dates. Following his San Diego show, the Chicago native along with King Louie & DJ Oreo will hit up California before hitting up the East and MidWest, and coming to a close on October 20 in Phoenix.

Bootleggers beware because Lil Chano ain’t playing no games. Anyone trying to get some illegal coin by selling unofficial tour-related gear will be prosecuted as his team is prepared to act quickly. So in closing, don’t steal from the good guy!

The first stop on his tour started off on the good foot performing his own rendition of “Waves” off of Kanye West’s 2016 project, The Life of Pablo. Prior to Ye’s release, Chance shared via twitter the difficulties he face in order to get the song included.”I fought everyone to keep “Waves” on the album,” he wrote. “I spent all night finishing it. The world is better because of it.”
