Chance the Rapper proves once again that he'll do anything for his city – especially for Chicago's youth. Last week, the artist and ride-sharing service Lyft announced a partnership in collaboration with SocialWorks, a non-profit co-founded by Chance the Rapper.
The partnership will allow Lyft riders in Chicago to round up their fair to the nearest dollar in an effort to donate to the New Chance: Arts & Literature Fund.

Chance the Rapper's good deeds seem to never end, and his community is appreciative of his efforts. On top of the new partnership announcement last week, the rapper bought out movie theaters so people can see the movie Marshall for free.

Chance the Rapper's popular music and his efforts to stand up and support his community have made him a favorite of the Obamas. Chance and The Obama Foundation recently announced that the popular rapper will curate a concert for the organization's upcoming summit on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
Last month, Chance the Rapper announced that SocialWorks has raised more than $2 million to donate to 20 public schools in Chicago.
