Chance the Rapper is making headlines for more amazing news!!!
First off, he is the new face of a fashion line honoring the presidency of Barack Obama by Joe FreshGoods called #ThankUObama. Joe Lloyd’s reasoning for starting the clothing line was inspired by the hope that Obama’s presidency gave to Chance as a black man.
WOW. That’s powerful.
“with this project i wanted to timestamp a period in my life where i felt like i can do whatever i wanted to do and be whatever i wanted to be. The night obama won his first term gave me so much hope, especially & most importantly as a black man. I decided to make a collection saying “thank you” and give me something to smile at every now and then when i look in the closet.”- Joe FreshGoods
And so are the iconic pieces in the line. It was reported that within the initial minutes that the clothing line dropped the site crashed.
Here are some of those iconic pieces.
