Chance the Rapper, the genre redefining, physical album non releasing, socially aware money where his mouth is, Chicago superstar made his 2018 fourth of July a memorable one after proposing to his girlfriend Kristen Corley. Kristen Corley and Chance the Rapper (neé Chancellor Jonathan Bennett) have been together with a temporary split since 2013, and raise their two and a half year old daughter Kensli Bennett together.
