A week after the release of his third mixtape, Coloring Book, Chicago's own Chance the Rapper seems to be in a celebratory mood. The mixtape, which is currently streaming exclusively through Apple Musicis primed to become the first album to hit the Billboard 200 charts based exclusively on streaming numbers (remember, you can't actually buy the new record).

Late last night, the local emcee took to his Twitter account to announce a series of events that will be held at an undisclosed location in Chicago this weekend. Cryptically dubbed "Magnificent Coloring World," the events are scheduled to occur over the course of four sessions (three all ages and one 21+) on Saturday, May 21. Tickets—which ranged from $40 for the all ages sessions to $60 for the 21+ session—sold out within minutes of going on sale. Chance hasn't offered any additional details about the "experiences," but it seems likely that he'll make some sort of appearance at these events, though he may not actually be performing.

We'll update this post as we learn more about the events. In the meantime, if you missed out on tickets, some of the lucky folks who snatched them up are already cutting deals on Craigslist and Reddit.
