When Chance the Rapper agreed to be our December issue cover star (as a Chicagoan of the Year), he had one request: to do the shoot at U.S. Cellular Field. “My dad and uncle used to take me to games at the park when I was a kid,” he told us. So on a sunny Friday morning in October, we met Chance at the Cell to snap some photos. Go behind the scenes of the shoot in the video below, and read more about the Chicagoans of the Year here.
