Chance The Rapper’s ascension to superstardom and household name recognition continues as the Chicago rapper has found himself engaged to give a private performance for another fellow Chicagoan, President Barack Obama.

According to the “Chain Smoker” rapper’s Twitter, he’s been booked to perform at the White House’s National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, December 1.

An honor it truly is as before himself only six other rappers in history have received an invitation to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Not all were there to rip the mic either. Lil Chano will perform alongside American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson and gospel singer Yolanda Adams at the event.

Tickets go on sale October 7 and the ceremony itself will be televised on December 2.
