Chance the Rapper postponed his tour to spend more time with his growing family

“When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again,” he wrote.

He apologized to fans in the post, but the comments have been overwhelmingly positive.

“A real one,” said singer Ari Lennox, followed by a heart emoji.

Even the United Center, an arena in Chicago and home to the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Blackhawks, tweeted their approval, saying “We fully support your decision @ChanceTheRapper. Congrats on your new daughter.”

Chance’s “The Big Day” tour was scheduled to kick off September 14 in San Francisco, hitting 34 cities. Now, the tour will kick off January 15, though the Chicago show and his festival commitments are still on.
