Maybe they should have called his show "30 Rap."
This is me beatboxing while Alec Baldwin raps, he is for the people. Him, Alfred Woodard and Ali from Tribe came thru the city to help raise money for YCA, the organization that built and developed myself and @Malcolmlondon into the leaders we have become. Give it up for them. Beautiful leaders we can all learn from #Chicago #LongLiveTheYoung #YCA
A video posted by Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) on
Chance the Rapper uploaded this short clip to his Instagram, in which he provides the human beatbox while Alec Baldwin lays down some sick rhymes. The footage comes from a charity event for Young Chicago Authors, an organization that helps prepare young people in Chicago to be culturally literate citizens of the world. Chance is an alum, and has done a lot of work for YCA in the years since. Baldwin, however, just loves spitting over a fresh beat. His lyrics are actually taken from Carl Sandburg's poem "Chicago":
" …for I have seen your painted women under the gas lamps luring the farm boys.
And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to kill again."
Not that any of us thought he was freestyling.
