GRANT PARK — Chicago own's Chance The Rapper helped kick off the Taste of Chicago in style, joining his friends and collaborators Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment to perform at the festival Wednesday.

After Trumpet and The Social Experiment performed a set with guest spots from Joey Purp and D.R.A.M., Chance came out to perform a few tracks and hold a moment of silence for Alton Sterling, the black man who was shot dead by a Baton Rouge Police officer Tuesday night in Louisiana, and others cut down by violence in our country.

Chance, Trumpet, and The Social Experiment performed four tracks together onstage, including "No Problem" and "Sunday Candy" to close out the set.
