Chance the Rapper Canceled His Coachella Set Due to Illness

Chance The Rapper (Chancelor Bennett) performs at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio.

Bad news for rap fans, bad news for fans of surprise Bieber cameos: Chance the Rapper has canceled his Sunday Coachella performance after being hospitalized for unknown reasons. On Friday evening, the Chicago MC tweeted that he had been feeling sick but expected to be better in time for his set. Then earlier this morning, someone posted a photo to Chance's Instagram showing the rapper lying in a hospital bed hooked to IVs, with the caption, "Pray for my boy chance." The photo has since been deleted, but Chance's management took to Twitter to announce the cancellation, explaining, "Chance fell ill on Friday night & was admitted to the hospital today — Doctors & family are with him & he is expected to make a full recovery." Get well soon, Chance.
