Chicago hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper surprised unsuspecting Lyft riders in his latest effort to raise money for Chicago’s public schools.

Lyft shared a video of the rapper and philanthropist appearing as an undercover driver to encourage riders to round up their fares and donate to arts education programs, the Chicago Tribune reported Monday.


Lyft has a new feature in its ride hailing app allowing users to “Round Up and Donate” to a charity of their choice.

In the video released Monday, Chance is lightly disguised behind a beanie and sunglasses and takes in a few riders before donning his signature baseball cap and revealing his identity. The video is part of the company’s “Undercover Lyft” series.

Through his nonprofit SocialWorks, Chance has already raised and donated millions of dollars to Chicago's public school system and other local causes.

The partnership with Chance and SocialWorks is just the latest effort to benefit Chicago schools. In March 2017, Chance presented the district with a $1 million check.

“I’m only 25, but I bet I get a statue in my hometown when I die,” he said.
