Chance is the Youngest on Fortunes 40 Under 40!

2017 Hangout Music Festival - Day 3

Chance the Rapper has just made Fortune's 40 Under 40 list,  "annual ranking of the most influential young people in business." Not only that, but he's the youngest one as well, at age 24.

According to Billboard

Fortune highlighted his untraditional path to success in the music industry, as well as his endorsement deals with brands like Apple, Nestle and Nike. The rapper notably skipped a major label deal in favor streaming his own mixtapes, and found himself the winner of a trio of Grammys anyway: 2016's Coloring Book earned him wins for best rap album, best new artist and best rap performance (for "No Problem").

Chance -- who was recently congratulated by fellow Chicagoan and former President Barack Obama for serving as grand marshal in the city's Bud Billiken Parade, the largest African-American parade in the United States -- joins names like Mark Zuckerbeg, Daniel Ek, Serena Williams and Kevin Hart in the ranking.
