Asian fans of Chance The Rapper rejoiced when he recently announced that he will tour Asia for the first time in his career. The “No Problem” singer will perform in Japan, Manila and Singapore as part of the “Asia Run” leg of his tour. In Japan, Chance will play two shows at the famous Summer Sonic festival in Tokyo and Osaka.

During the ceremony, he also received an honorary doctorate joining the likes of fellow rapper and Chicago native Kanye West.
