Chance The Rapper to play at White House Christmas tree lighting

It’s going to be lit, and we’re not talking about the tree

4:00 PM

Last week, Tennessee State University’s band took to the White House’s South Lawn and as part of a medley played Chance The Rapper’s No Problem. It was a rousing rendition that left this reporter speechless, as I never thought I’d hear a band like that, playing a song like that, in a place like that. Now, come holiday time, fans can get the real thing.

Alongside singers Yolanda Williams and Kelly Clarkson, Young Chano will be performing at the White House’s annual National Christmas Tree Lighting on Dec. 1. Of course, it won’t be his first time there. Remember that time he told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about his time getting drunk there? Yeah, that was fun. The ticket lottery begins Oct. 7.

This event looks fun, but will also likely be the official end of saying “it’s lit” as Lame Twitter is going to beat that meme into the ground once, you know, the actual tree is lit, if you will. I hate that I even have to think about that bit flooding my timeline.

Anyways, if we get a Chance Christmas album out of this, we’ll all be better off.
