Chance appeared at a Knicks game mid-November in the lead up to him hosting Saturday Night Live and everyone made fun of the title card, which read "Chance The Rapper - Rapper". Google officials said the company believes computer science is a critical part of education and helps students and educators develop technical skills for the future.

The tech giant donated $1 million to the hip hop star's nonprofit, SocialWorks, which promotes youth empowerment through the arts, education and civic engagement.

According to reports, Chance broke the news of his $1.5 million partnership with Google.org Wednesday (December 6) at a public school.

Earlier today, Chance took to Twitter to unveil that Google funded coding classes for 20 public schools in the south and west sides of Chicago with a $1M donation to his SocialWorks initiative with an addition $500K being donated towards Chicago Public Schools' CS4ALL initiative.

The proud Chicago native gifted dozens of local high schoolers with early Christmas presents during the most recent of the monthly Open Mike night he hosts through his charity foundation, Social Works.

This prompted Chance to have a simple request, should this happen again.
