He was actually pretty good.
Chance The Rapper visited the WGN-TV studios today to recap his breakthrough year, and while he was there he did the weather.
The musician, who comes from Chicago where WGN is based, had a sit-down interview about the past 12 months, which included big wins at the Grammy Awards and a well-received turn hosting Saturday Night Live.
Chance also spoke with the hosts about the money he’s raised and work he’s done for Chicago through his SocialWorks charity.
He was then invited by WGN Morning News weatherman Paul Konrad to try out a new job – as WGN’s weatherman.
“Here’s my advice. I’ve been doing this for 20 years,” said Konrad.
“All you have to do is really just smile, be relatively sexy – like I am – just read some numbers and you’re good to go!”
Chance gave it his all, even dropping in a few quips as he went.
“Due to the Peruvian purchase apparently Peru is in here as well,” he joked.
Chance even tried on a “cloak of invisibility” to take advantage of the green-screen tech and disappear from view while he was doing his forecast.
During the broadcast, Chance also had a mini-motorcycle race with WGN-TV’s sports anchor Past Tomasulo.
With Tomasulo’s cycle having difficulties, Chance proved just as adept at racing as he was doing the weather and won with ease.
While he was hosting SNL last month, Chance pleaded in song for former US President Barack Obama to return and save the world from Donald Trump.
“Every night I turn the TV on and cry,” he sang.
“So come back Barack, we didn’t know just what we had / Now things are looking bad – like really bad, like world war bad, like nuclear bad.”
