Not one to shy away from driving social activism, Chance the Rapper led thousands of Chicago fans to vote last night following his free block party/concert, Parade to the Polls.

Organized by the Chicago MC’s non-profit Social Works, the show featured Malcolm London, Twin Peaks, Chance’s brother Taylor Bennett and Lil Chano himself, who also performed at a Cleveland rally for Clinton this past weekend. To cap off the event, Chance trooped a crowd of voters from Grant Park’s Petrillo Music Shell to Washington Street’s super site, setting a Cook County early voting record in the process.
