Chance The Rapper has been a busy guy lately, and has been showing us all that he is a man of many talents. Not only can he rap, but he can also win Grammy Awards for his rap. We’ve also seen that he is perfectly capable of hosting on Saturday Night Live. Did you see his turn as a clueless hockey reporter? In case you missed it:
… Let’s do that hockey!
But can he present the weather on a morning news program?
Well, based on what he did this morning on Chicago’s WGN, I’d say… yes!

Apparently the tips from WGN’s veteran weatherman Paul Konrad helped Chance a bit. What were those tips?
“I’ve been doing this for 20 years. All you have to do is really just smile, be relatively sexy, just read some numbers and you’re good to go!”
I especially liked the part where he donned his “invisibility cloak.”
That’s a tactic I’ve seen CHEX TV‘s Caley Bedore use on a couple occasions:

Why was Chance even there to begin with? It was all in support of the 15th Annual WGN Morning News Toy Drive. And on top of kind of forecasting the weather, Chance also took on WGN’s Pat Tomasulo in an e-bike race in the TV station’s hallways:
And while I appreciate the spirit of the race, I do have to question Tomasulo saying that the two don’t need safety helmets because they’re men. Sure, those electrical bikes won’t go too fast, but safety is important. Still looks like a lot of fun though.

What will Chance The Rapper do next? WGN apparently offered him a full-time job after his performance this morning.
