Chance the Rapper on ‘sabbatical’ to study the Bible

Chance the Rapper announced on Instagram Friday that he’s going on “sabbatical” so he can get closer to God.

“I’m on a plane headed out of the country … I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with,” he captioned a video in which he cradles his new nephew.

I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible. we all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it. So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here and I need to be able to give my nephew Charlie Matthew the knowledge and tools to FUCK YALL UP. Lol but seriously he’s the first boy of the next line and he needs his uncle to be educated. So dont bother me, ill be back soon enough, with five or more books from bible read. Oh yeah and cigarette free 🙏🏾🎄🚭

Since the announcement, Chance has been posting passages from the Bible and images of his daughter at what appears to be a secluded sanctuary.
