Inspiration comes in all forms. For Chance The Rapper, it came in the form of a conversation with Offset.
While making an appearance at Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Chance revealed that Offset inspired him to pop the question to his wife, Kirsten Bennett. Chance revealed that he spoke with Offset about doing a feature for Cardi B’s album, Invasion of Privacy, which inspired him to officially settle down.
“This other thing that actually changed my life. We were at Coachella when we had this conversation,” Chance said. “He was like, ‘Everybody doesn’t know this, but this thing between me and Bardi isn’t fake. We actually just got married in my backyard like a couple weeks ago and we didn’t tell anybody.’ And this was before it got announced that he was married, this is before like everything that’s happened through their relationship. And he was like, ‘This is my wife! This is who I’ma be with for the rest of my life. So like as close as we are, just know we a million times closer and this is what we need as a family.”
He continued, “Obviously her album’s dope and blah blah, but just keep it real with me if you’re gonna do this.’ And I was like, ‘Before you said all that stuff I wanted to do it, but now I’m gonna do it and I’m gonna propose to my wife soon!’ So ‘Set just being one hundred percent clear about it definitely probably one of the big inspirations of me manning up.”
The couple officially tied the knot back in March. More recently, Chance announced on Instagram that he is postponing his “Big Day Tour” to spend time with his family. After welcoming his second child, Chance doesn’t want to miss out on priceless moments.
