Chance the Rapper might have to expand his name soon. The young Chicago MC has took to Instagram to share the artwork for his short film (he appears as Chancelor Bennett). Mr. Happy will supposedly release tomorrow. Chance made it with his “good friend/director” Colin Tilley. This is Tilley’s first short film, but he’s been directing music videos for the likes of Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa for some time.

 UPDATE: Chance has posted a short trailer for the film:

Me and Colin Tilley’s film debut. #MrHappy a short film releases tomorrow

We’ve already seen Chance’s formidable acting chops on the Eric Andre show, so this is sure to be a quality short.
