Chance The Rapper revealed he will perform his debut headline show in the UK later this month while chatting to fans as part of a Reddit AMA last night (July 31).

The 'ask me anything' interview took place yesterday evening with Chance, who released the 'Acid Rap' mixtape earlier this year, confirming that he will play a one-off show at XOYO in London on August 26. The gig takes place after the Reading and Leeds Festivals, at which the rapper will perform alongside Devlin, Action Bronson and Giggs on the new for 2013 BBC 1Xtra stage.

Elsewhere in Chance The Rapper's AMA, he revealed that he is influenced by Frank Ocean and would love to collaborate with the Odd Future affiliate in the future. "Frank Ocean is one of my biggest influences of this past year. 'Channel Orange' was on play non-stop from when it came out up until about six months ago. Huge, huge, huge fan." He also revealed that his dream collaboration would be with Kanye West and urged his fans to read Freakonomics by Steven D Levitt if they are looking for a good book to read.

Chance The Rapper will play:

London, XOYO (August 26)
