Yup, that’s the Acid Rapper himself on the cover of Complex Magazine’s October/November 2013 issue. The issue doesn’t go on sale until October, but you can read the full cover story on Chance at Complex now. Definitely a great look for Mr. Bennett. Check out an excerpt below:

Chance The Rapper
 isn’t a full-blown star yet, but he’s well on his way, and we’re willing to bet that he soon will be. He first hit the scene with his mixtape 
10 Day
 in 2012, and while it garnered considerable buzz (enough to get him on our list of 10 Chicago Rappers To Watch For before it even dropped) it wasn’t enough to make him pop off on rap blogs. 
10 Day
 did set the stage for his second tape, this year’s excellent 
Acid Rap—
a mixtape so good that we named it the second best album of 2013 so far, second only to Kanye West’s 
. Not only was 
Acid Rap
critically praised, it launched Chance’s career in a major way, sparking interest from just about every major label.

We know a star when we see one, and as with Kid Cudi and A$AP Rocky before him, Chance shows all the signs. So we decided to take a chance on Chance and give him the first major magazine cover of his budding career. We sent staff writer (and fellow Chicago native) 
David Drake
 on the road with Chance as he toured the country in a used RV. Meanwhile, we enlisted photographer 
Chris McPherson
 to shoot a star we’re going to be seeing a lot of in the future—along with some sort of alien who might have flown in from the future. Chance talks about how he grew up idolizing 
Michael Jackson
, how 
Kanye West
The College Dropout 
convinced him he didn’t need school, and confesses his love of skydiving. We even hit the strip club with him and his crew.
