- Chance the Rapper received an act of kindness from Martin Short on a recent flight.
- The “No Problem” rapper detailed how Short gave up his seat so he could sit next to his daughter.
- “What an awesome person!” he wrote. “SHOUTOUT TO JACK FROST.”
Chance the Rapper detailed on Sunday how on a recent flight, he ended up on the receiving end of an adorable act of kindness from the “Only Murders in the Building” actor Martin Short.
“So I just got on this plane with my daughter, and found out our seats weren’t next to each other,” the “No Problem” rapper tweeted.
“I really ain’t wanna inconvenience anyone by asking them to swap seats, but before I could say anything this kind older gentleman offered his seat to Kensli so we could sit together,” he added. “We both said thank you and as he stands up, I realize it’s THE Martin Short!”
Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, said Kensli, 7, was “freaked out” by the encounter because she loved the movie “The Santa Clause 3,” in which Short plays Jack Frost.
“What an awesome person!” the Chicago native added. “SHOUTOUT TO JACK FROST.”
One commenter wrote below Chance’s tweet: “Martin Short is the only human who really matters.” Another added: “He is a gem!”
When one fan joked that Chance should have taken the chance to sit next to Short himself, Chance replied: “Oh thanks so much but the little girl will be fine where she is… *opens laptop* ANYWAYS this a lil script I’ve been working on it’s called ‘Four Amigos!'”
This month, Chance whipped his fans into a frenzy by teasing a special concert to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his sophomore mixtape, “Acid Rap.”
While the project, which includes features from Twista, Childish Gambino, and Action Bronson, was — and remains — free to download, it ended up charting at No. 63 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums three months after its release because of bootleg downloads on iTunes and Amazon.
To date, it has been downloaded over 1 million times.
On February 1, Chance put together a montage of clips from the time in an Instagram video, which he captioned: “Who wants a show?”
