Chance the Rapper Wanted People to See ‘Marshall’ So Bad He Bought Out Theaters for Free Viewings

Chance The Rapper is known as much for his community works in his beloved Chicago as he is his chart-topping music. On Friday morning (Oct. 13), Lil Chano From 79th tweeted to his followers a screencap of an iPhone note he called a “press release,” which he had typed up himself regarding the new movie Marshall.

“Chance The rapper Press release FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE,” it reads. “I bought all the tickets all day to go see Marshall at the movie theatre on 87th and the one on Roosevelt. Go see Marshall today for free. Come to the one at 3. It’s lit. I don’t usually write my own press releases.”

Marshall tells the story of Thurgood Marshall, the country’s first African-American Supreme Court justice. The biopic focuses on one of his most renowned cases as a lawyer when he represented a black man accused of raping a white woman. It opened in theaters Friday.

UPDATE: Chance’s invitation turned out to be even more exciting when he showed up to the movie theater for a surprise panel with the Marshall cast. Check out a photo from the event below, as well as a tweet from actor Sterling K. Brown.
