Fans are obsessively watching Chance the Rapper's Twitter as he barrels toward a new album. Today, he tried to use all that attention to do some good for someone in his family. The rapper and father asked his fans to get tested to see if they could donate a kidney, as his aunt is in desperate need of a transplant.
"I really need help. My Auntie Toni is one of the strongest forces in my life, and she is in dire need of a #kidney," he wrote. "We have exhausted all options and have been wait listed for years."
Of course, not everyone is willing or able to give up a kidney. For those folks, the artist had a simple suggestion.
