Captioning stuff on the Jumbotron is tough work. You’ve got to move quick and be effective with your time. So perhaps it’s not altogether surprising that whoever was on duty at Madison Square Garden during the Knicks game just typed the first thing that came to their head to help audiences know Chance the Rapper’s occupation. But audiences may have found the descriptor just a tad redundant.

And at least one person knows that Chance the Rapper is more than just a rapper.

And someone else pointed out that Chance should look the bright side because, hey, he’s not alone.

If you want to see Chance the Rapper stretch his wings as Chance the Hoster, you’ll have your chance(!) this Saturday, when he takes over hosting duties on Saturday Night Live.
