Chance The Rapper Leans On Prayer As Aunt Needs New Kidney
Chance The Rapper is leaning on prayer during his aunt’s battle to find a new kidney.
The Chicago-born rapper whose name is Chancellor Bennett, shared a transparent post on social media recently where he opened up about his aunt’s struggles.
In the midst of his family struggles, the rapper and his family are praying.
“My family believes in the power of prayer and we give this problem up to God,” he wrote. “A prayer really goes a long way.”
I really need help. My Auntie Toni is one of the strongest forces in my life, and she is in dire need of a #kidney. We have exhausted all options and have been wait listed for years. My family believes in the power of prayer and we give this problem up to God.

He shared some more specific information about her blood type and revealed how people could help.
“I’m sorry it was a lil overwhelmingly [emotional] writing this, Her blood type is O positive, you can get a quick blood test and physical to find your a match,” he wrote.
The popular rapper often shares his faith on social media and even took a sabbatical last year to study the Bible.
“I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my Bible,” he said on Instagram last year.“We all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it.”
While faith is a large part of the rapper’s life, he previously explained why he didn’t solely make Christian music.
“I never really set out to make anything that could pretend to be new gospel or pretend to be the gospel. It’s just music from me as a Christian man because I think before I was making music as a Christian child,” Chance previously said on the Beats 1 radio program. And in both cases I have imperfections, but there was a declaration that can be made through going all the [stuff] I’ve been through the last few years.”
