Chance The Rapper announces break from music

Here's hoping he'll be back by Longitude...

Earlier this week, Chance The Rapper was announced as one of the headline acts for next year's Longitude festival.

Rap fans were delighted with the news, as it is his first time performing in Ireland since 2013.

But those fans will be a little bit worried by the Chicago rapper's most recent Instagram post.

In a lengthy post, Chance informed fans that he would be taking some time off from music.

In the post, he said: "I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible."

You can see the message in full here:

I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible. we all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it. So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here and I need to be able to give my nephew Charlie Matthew the knowledge and tools to FUCK YALL UP. Lol but seriously he’s the first boy of the next line and he needs his uncle to be educated. So dont bother me, ill be back soon enough, with five or more books from bible read. Oh yeah and cigarette free ????

The news is made even more concerning considering the fact that he cancelled the last time he was supposed to perform in Ireland.

Fingers crossed this break won't be a long one.
