“Seeing movies together on the big screen is an essential part of summertime and something I deeply missed over the last year, Chance the Rapper said in a statement, “I am extremely excited and honored to partner with AMC to safely bring fans back to the theater.”
Taking to social media to share the news, the “Holy” rapper expounded on his excitement regarding the partnership, sharing with fans he’s hoping they would be “proud” of his work.
“I really can’t wait for y’all all to be able to see my movie in theatres,” Chance wrote. “Like I think you’ll be really proud.”
This upcoming release marks the first project from Chance to be released through AMC. The self-distributed film also marks the first film released through his House of Kicks imprint.
