Bonnaroo 2015 SuperJam: Chance The Rapper Covers Fresh Prince & Biggie Smalls
Chance also joined Kendrick Lamar and Earth, Wind & Fire for a surprise song.
Chance the Rapper covered two hip hop classics, ‘Juicy’ and ‘Summertime’, at a US festival.
The Chicago rapper performed the much-loved Fresh Prince and Biggie songs during Bonnaroo festival’s Superjam. (Check it out above.)
A long-running tradition at the Tennessee festival, the Superjam brings together a group of artists for a one-off collaboration. This year’s event had a 'Throwback' theme and also featured covers and originals performed by SZA, Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff, and DMC of Run-DMC as well as a duet by Zach Galifianakis and ‘Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm.
Chance also made a surprise appearance, together with Kendrick Lamar, during Earth, Wind & Fire’s performance on the second day of the festival. The two freestyled together with the band providing the backing.

It’s not the first cover of a 90s TV show that Chance has performed. The theme show for children’s TV show ‘Arthur’ has become a staple of his sets.
Chance is reportedly working on a follow-up to 2013’s ‘Acid Raps’, due out later this year. He recently released an album, 'Surf', made together with The Social Experiment.
