(CelebrityAccess) — Chance the Rapper announced he has partnered with United Talent Agency for representation in all areas, and worldwide bookings outside the US and Canada.
UTA will represent Chance in a variety of areas, including global touring, brand partnerships, acting, producing, licensing and synchronization, speaking engagements, books, and his extensive philanthropic endeavors.
Chance is riding high on the release of his debut studio LP, “The Big Day” in July, with the album landing at 2 on the Billboard 200, marking his highest-charting album to date.
However, he first broke through to the mainstream with the success of his mixtapes, including 2017’s “Coloring Book” which won Grammys for “Best Rap Album,” “Best New Artist” and “Best Rap Performance” on the strength of the single “No Problem.”
Chance has also expanded his focus into the realms of film and television and provided the voice for a character in Disney’s live-action reboot of “The Lion King” earlier this year. Other acting credits include a role in Rebecca Sugar’s “Steven Universe: The Movie,” where he also served as executive producer.
Additionally, he served as an executive producer on the basketball documentary Shot in the Dark alongside NBA player Dwayne Wade and is lined up to serve as a judge and executive producer on the Netflix talent competition “Rhythm + Flow.”
He has also made a positive impact on the lives of people in his hometown of Chicago, where he founded SocialWorks, which focuses on education, mental health, homelessness, and performing and literary arts for Chicago’s youth. He’s also donated two million dollars to Chicago’s Public School system.
