#CaliChristmas headliner Chance The Rapper is already setting the tone for the gift giving season.
The Chicago native recently announced his plans to donate $1 million to Chicago schools, even mentioned that he will be donating his Grammy Awards to his hometown museum, and now the ‘Coloring Book’ emcee has spread some early Christmas cheer, during his OpenMike event.
With the help of Nike, Chance gifted 300 pairs of Jordan Retro 11’s to the high school student attendees. The new kicks won’t be released until Saturday, so the few lucky fans were hooked up with the $220 shoes a little early.
Fans took to Twitter to thank the rapper and Chance even shouted out everyone behind the event as well.

On the anniversary of the passing of my mentor Brother Mike, @OpenMikeChicago had one of it’s best nights yet. Thanks to @Korporate00 for speaking and thanks to @Jumpman23 for bringing 300 pair of unreleased 11s for the young creatives. Until next year… POWER TO THE PEOPLE…
