The last time Chicago hip-hop phenom Chance the Rapper played Sacramento in 2013, the show was super sold out. That was at the now defunct Assembly, a medium sized club with approximately a 500-600 person capacity. Come this September, he’ll get a much bigger stage: one at TBD Fest. That’s right, you heard it here first, SPIN’s 2013 rapper of the year and one of the most buzz worthy hip-hop artists as of late Chance the Rapper is joining the already stellar lineup for this year’s TBD Fest, happening September 18 – 20 in Sacramento.

TBD’s hip-hop lineup this year is extremely strong: Tyler the Creator, Mobb Deep, Death Grips, K.Flay, Ty Dolla $ign, Chuuwee, Rasar, Tel Cairo, and now, Chance. They join artists like Cut Copy, Tears for Fears, Pretty Lights, Purity Ring, Tycho, Dr Dog, A-Trak, Black Lips and so many others.

Download the brand spanking new jazzy/experimental album Surf for free from Chance the Rapper’s group Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment now on iTunes. The album features collaborations with Busta Rhymes, B.o.B., Janelle Monaé, Big Sean, Erykah Badu and others.
