Best Bonnaroo Tradition: Random Chance the Rapper Appearances

For the third straight year, Chance the Rapper performed at Bonnaroo — even though he wasn't technically on the lineup this year or last. The Chicago rapper popped up as an unannounced guest during J. Cole's Friday main stage set to perform Coloring Book's "No Problem" before ferrying a golf cart to join R&B sensation Bryson Tiller on the That Tent stage a few hours later. The following night, Chance made two more onstage appearances, first with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to perform their collaborative This Unruly Mess I've Made cut "Need to Know" on the main stage before cruising over to Miguel's late-night set to cover the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy." Sunday, Chance had one last surprise: A "listening party" of his acclaimed Coloring Book at Bonnaroo's famed Silent Disco.
