The supermarket chain Jewel-Osco donated $1 million to the rapper’s New Chance Arts & Literature Fund, which is in collaboration with SocialWorks, the Chicago Public School system and Ingenuity. Ingenuity is a program committed to promoting the arts education.

After the announcement was made by Jewel-Osco president Doug Cygan, Chano told an excited student body the good news.


You guys don’t receive the same benefits that a lot of other people do, and your parents pay the same money into the same government taxes. These are people and things that have a big impact on your lives and how you’re educated.

The Chicago emcee is out here putting on for his city in the best way. Check out the news coverage of the donation above.
