Yup, this unlikely combo happened and it was great. Baldwin’s raps are actually lines from Carl Sandburg’s classic “Chicago” poem.
Fitting because today for the 15th anniversary of the Louder Than a Bomb youth poetry festival here in the Chi, Chance The Rapper and Alec Baldwin linked up as part of the festivities. Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Alfre Woodard as well. Find out more from youngchicagoauthors.org as hopefully more video surfaces. One more clip below.
