Chance the Rapper has postponed his upcoming tour to spend a little more time with his family.
The rapper and his wife Kirsten Bennett welcomed a second daughter, Marli, just last week and Chance took to Instagram to reflect on the recent changes in his life.
“I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work.”

“When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli.”
Chance goes on the add that his tour will kick-off next year, January 15. Fans can still get tickets or seek a refund. His Chicago show on September 28 is still a go.
It really has been a busy year of personal and professional milestones for Chance. Along with the birth of his second child, the rapper tied the knot with his longtime love in a beautiful ceremony in March and released his debut studio album The Big Day in July. Starting October 9, he joins Cardi B and T.I. as a judge on the Netflix competition series Rhythm + Flow.
