Chicago-native Chance the Rapper dropped a preview Friday for his upcoming new film, "Magnificent Coloring World," gaining traction within minutes of the release.
In partnership with AMC Theatres, Chance shared less than a minute into his movie, seemingly focused around the artists' performances "for the first time ever," according to the trailer.
On May 2, the rapper tweeted "If I made a movie, would u go see it in theatres?" which he retweeted later this week. Nearly 10,000 people liked the post and more than 800 replied.
