Sometimes You Just Need Your Mama! Is Chance The Rapper Moving Back In With His Parents?
Paying rent is trash, even if you’re one of the most successful artists in the hip-hop game.
Fresh off of his historic Grammy win, Chance the Rapper is making new music and contemplating moving back in with his parents. An unsigned independent artist who has never sold a single record, Chance the Rapper, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, has never done things the conventional way.
Returning to his native Chicago after deciding that Los Angeles was NOT for him, Chance has begun thinking about moving back in with his parents. While most millennials jump at the chance of complete independence from their parents, even though the rent is too high, Chance is thinking about family in a whole new way these days.
The 23-year-old has a 1-year old daughter named Kensli, and the precious little girl has helped him grow closer to his own family; he’s learned to lean on his parents for support. In a recent interview with Complex he said, “Like, I’m honestly, in real life, thinking about moving in with my parents right now. I think, anybody, if they were in my position—if they were 23 with a kid for the first time and were working—they would find comfort in being able to stay with their parents. If their parents are willing.”
Since he’s out of the house and not eating up all of their food, we’re not sure how excited Chance’s parents would be about him moving back into his childhood bedroom. However, we definitely understand where he is coming from. During his interview, Chance had the sweetest things to say about his Mama, so she just might be considering letting her grown son move back in with her. He said, “There was never a point, ever, in my life where I can remember loving someone as much or more than I love my mom until I met my daughter. So, it made me understand that my mom loves me more than she loves anybody in the world, and that’s crazy to me. So, of course, I wanna be around her.”
Chance is the best. He just donated an insane $1 million dollars to the floundering Chicago Public School system so his parents have a lot to be proud of. Also, with all of his traveling and engagements, he might not even be home that much. We say go for it; there isn’t anything better than being around the people you love the most.
Also, adulting is hard AF so why not avoid it as much as possible? What do y’all think? Would you move home with your parents after moving out if you didn’t have to?
