Chance the Rapper Helped Open the Emmys With a Perfect Surprise Verse

Chance the Rapper drops some fire bars during Stephen Colbert's cold open.

Chance the Rapper is the G.O.A.T, and that's not even a discussion at this point. But he also knows just how to surprise and delight fans everywhere by showing up in some unlikely places, which is just what happened when he popped up during Stephen Colbert's musical cold opening for the Emmys tonight.

What's more, Colbert's opening monologue had a distinct political tinge to it, and Chance's rap was no different. Admittedly, Chance's appearance was a short gift, but what a gift it was.

"I love television, it's a pleasant distraction/But just imagine taking action/I like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, in fact I'm addicted/But where's the cop show where one gets convicted?" Chance rapped in the video above.

He finished off with a particularly relevant line in the age of mind-blowing finales (we're looking at you, Game of Thrones) and even more important injustices going on every day: "I get it, them finales, they got you focused/But just record the show and show up at the protest."
