Chance The Rapper Explains How He Has the 'Opposite of Impostor Syndrome'

Chance The Rapper suits up for the cover of Fast Company‘s winter issue, available now.

Here’s what the 26-year-old rapper had to share with the mag:

On how he handles social media: “I’m in the business of having to use social media, and I’m of the generation that really, like, made social media what it is. So it’s something I’m on all day. All the time. I think it’s definitely unhealthy, for sure! It’s just the reality of this time.”

On his morning routine: “Today I woke up at 4. I have a fresh baby, so I wake up real early. [Otherwise I’m up] by 7 or 7:30…I’ve got to take my daughter to school in the morning. And I just wake up early.”

On the best advice he got from his dad: “He was like, ‘Hire your friends.’ There’s no reason your friends should be working for people other than you, for less than they’re worth.

On his urge to give back to the community: “[It’s] just how I was raised and my faith. It’s the exact opposite of impostor syndrome. It’s like, I walk outside sometimes and I feel like I have an abundance, and so I feel like I need to share it and serve in all [the] ways that I can find. It just feels like that’s who I am—and not in a way that’s cocky [but just that] I’m supposed to share things.”

“I love my art form because I understand every practitioner of it, whether I agree with them or not I know where they’re coming from. They want to be heard, they got something to say, there’s something they notice. They just want to be understood,” Dave said while accepting the award (via CNN). “I love this genre, it saved my life.”
