Chance the Rapper Goes Undercover as Chicago Lyft Driver: 'Do You Know Who You Are?'
Chance the Rapper was driving for Lyft to raise money and awareness for Chicago Public Schools.
Chance the Rapper fooled several riders while posing as a Lyft driver to benefit arts programs at Chicago Public Schools.
The Illinois native and hip-hop artist-turned-philanthropist was disguised in a baseball cap and sunglasses. In a video released this week as part of the "Undercover Lyft" series, the Grammy-winning musician posed as a driver named John.
While driving, he jokes with passengers and asks about their favorite rappers.
"I like Kanye, Chance the Rapper,” one rider says.
"John" gives him the side-eye. “I love Chance the Rapper,” the driver says, with no mention of Kanye.
To another rider, Chance reaches out to shake his hand and asks, "What's your name?"
"Wh-whoa," he says.
"Whoa, what?" Chance asks.
"Do you know who you are?" the incredulous rider says.
To a female rider, Chance teases song lyrics from "All Night."
"I love my riders. I just don't like when they spill fries on the seat. Sometimes people lie on the seat. Fart on the seat."
Another passenger talks about how he saw Chance in concert.
"He did a show over at Northerly Island for the Special Olympics," the rider tells him.
Chance has already donated millions to Chicago's public school system. He is partnering with the ride share company, and encouraging passengers to use the service's app feature Round Up and Donate, which allows rides to support a charity, including CPS: The New Chance Fund.
When the world-famous rapper tells a female passenger his real identity, she doesn't believe him.
"I'm Chance the Rapper," he said.
"No, you're not," she replies.
And then the penny drops.
"Oh my God!" she said before wrapping her arms around him.
