Why does Chance the Rapper wear a number 3 hat?
He said the hats would be confiscated at school and given back to him at the end of the year, so for him hat-wearing was partly an act of “rebellion.”
When it comes to the number three, he explained why it has a special meaning for him.
He said: “I wanted to put something else on the hat. And so I decided to do ‘3’.
“I just thought that that made the most sense because it was the third project.”
He continued by saying another reason is that he wanted to include the project’s title on his cap and initially the original title was The Magnificent Coloring Book- something he could not fit on a hat.
But the number three also holds sentimental meaning for the rapper.
He added: “I’ve rationalized it to myself that it stands for the third mixtape, the holy trinity, and the three-pronged family of myself, my daughter, and my girl.”
What are Chance the Rapper’s biggest songs?
Born Chancelor Johnathan Bennett, the rapper first rose to fame in 2012 following the release of his mixtape 10 Day.
