Oh Chancelor--the Chicago rapper is definitely our dream date! After releasing one of the hottest musical projects of 2016, Coloring Book, scoring 7 Grammy nominations and making history as the first streaming only artist to score a nod, it's only right he's included in the Hot Chocolate Class. Plus he's smart, funny and a totally cutie. The proud father is all about activism and artistry and we swoon!

It's the first time he's ever posted images of his daughter on social media and we have to say, we hope he posts more.

"This is the girl who reintroduced me to God. She's the woman who reminded me how to be a man, and taught me how to love. She is everything I am but much better. I can't wait for her to one day help the world the way she has helped me," Chance captioned the first image of his baby girl. Dressed in a lion onesie with the chubbiest, cutest cheeks, it's impossible not to fall in love with Kensli.

Look up Kensli, say cheese!

Chance ended the year with a heartfelt message to all the parents out there, writing, " Dads know you can't/won't get this love anywhere else. We are the chosen few, the responsibility is heavy but duty is an honor. Mothers better know it ain't one thing in this world we can without you. Thank you to her mother, my mother and God for making all things possible."
