Chance The Rapper has partnered with MGM to produce an uplifting movie musical.
“Hope” which will be told through music follows a group of Chicago teenagers that band together to turn art into action within their community.
According to Deadline, Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Nico Segal will oversee the creation of the film’s original music. Segal is a longtime collaborator who with Chance formed Chance and The Social Experiment in Chicago and broke through with the 2015 album Surf.
The rapper has long given back to the Chicago community he grew up in and that includes creating Social Works, an organization aimed at empowering youth through arts, education and civic engagement within the city. The movie will further that message of empowerment.
