Chance the Rapper has detailed how he ended up on the receiving end of an adorable act of kindness from “Only Murders in the Building” actor Martin Short during a recent flight.
“So I just got on this plane with my daughter, and found out our seats weren’t next to each other,” the “No Problem” rapper tweeted on Sunday.
“I really ain’t wanna inconvenience anyone by asking them to swap seats, but before I could say anything this kind older gentleman offered his seat to Kensli so we could sit together,” he continued.
“We both said thank you and as he stands up, I realize it’s THE Martin Short!”
Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, said Kensli, 7, was “freaked out” by the encounter because she loves the movie “The Santa Clause 3,” in which Short plays Jack Frost.
“What an awesome person!” added the Chicago native. “SHOUTOUT TO JACK FROST.”
One commenter wrote below Chance’s tweet: “Martin Short is the only human who really matters.” Another added: “He is a gem!”
When one fan joked that Chance should have taken the chance to sit next to Short himself, he replied: “Oh thanks so much but the little girl will be fine where she is… *opens laptop* ANYWAYS this a lil script I’ve been working on it’s called ‘Four Amigos!'”
Earlier in February, Chance whipped his fans into a frenzy by teasing a special concert to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his sophomore mixtape “Acid Rap.”
Though the project, which includes features from Twista, Childish Gambino, and Action Bronson, was, and remains, free to download, it ended up charting at No. 63 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums three months after its release due to bootleg downloads on iTunes and Amazon.
To date, it has been downloaded over 1 million times.
On February 1, Chance put together a montage of clips from the time in an Instagram video, which he captioned: “Who wants a show?”
