Chance the Rapper Taking A Sabbatical To Get Closer To God & For His Nephew

Chance the Rapper shared a lengthy message about why he’s choosing to become closer to God on Friday (Dec. 7). The rapper’s brother, Taylor Bennett, recently gave birth to a baby boy, and now Chance believes he needs to be a little more equipped to be the best uncle he can be. In a video of him holding the new baby, Charlie Matthew Bennett, Chance’s attached caption reads,

I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn to Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible. we all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it. So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here and I need to be able to give my nephew Charlie Matthew the knowledge and tools to F*CK YALL UP. Lol but seriously he’s the first boy of the next line and he needs his uncle to be educated. So dont bother me, ill be back soon enough, with five or more books from bible read. Oh yeah and cigarette free

In the black and white filtered video Chance shared along with the announcement of his sabbatical, he can be viewed as basking in the birth of his new nephew.

Taylor shared news about his newborn via Instagram almost a week after Thanksgiving (Tuesday, Nov. 27). He posted a photo of him and his newborn and attached the caption,

Welcome, Charlie! #Fatherhood
