University Union announces Chance the Rapper for first Bandersnatch concert

Chicago artist Chance the Rapper will perform in the Schine Underground in November.

Does Syracuse have enough hip-hop yet?

University Union thinks not. After bringing Kendrick Lamar to Juice Jam and announcing performances from Twenty One Pilots and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the student group announced Chicago's Chance the Rapper as the first act for the annual Bandersnatch Series, which features smaller, up-and-coming artists in a more intimate concert setting.

Chance the Rapper will perform with openers DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6, in the Schine Underground. Doors will open at 7 p.m.

Chance the Rapper broke out in 2011 with his mixtape, #10Day, which he recorded during a 10-day suspension from high school. This past summer, he released his second mix tape, Acid Rap, to wide critical acclaim (including positive reactions from SPIN and Rolling Stone, as well as a nomination for Best Mixtape at the BET Awards).

Tickets for Chance the Rapper will go on sale Friday, Sept. 27, at the Schine Student Center Box Office. Tickets are $5 for all SU and SUNY ESF students and faculty.
