Chance York is the Minneapolis emcee, known for work with his jazzy quartet, Crunchy Kids. 2016 was a remarkable year for Chance, releasing his first solo EP, "Fed and Famished". The EP was brief and experimental, mentioned as one of the best MN hip hop releases of the year by GO95. A favorite special guest and versatile talent in the veins of Minneapolis hip-hop’s sub-genres, Chance became all his own.
He released the "Crop EP" with the ever-popular, Crunchy Kids and toured regionally, blessing SummerSet Music Festival, opening up for Chance the Rapper. In addition to his work with Crunchy Kids, as a member of City Pages’ 2015 Best New Act, Eric Mayson’s Detail, Chance established himself as a dynamic showman, singer, and potent rapper, with his abilities crossing lines of genre and subculture.
As 2016 came to a close, Chance released, "Highest Self," an EP produced entirely by championed producer, Big Cats! "Highest Self" fuses banging 808s and hi hats with beautiful musical compositions, orchestrated to fit Chance’s profound explorations of spirit science, deep insights into optimism and a levity on current events.
