Chicago has been eagerly waiting for Chance the Rapper's first real show in Chicago since the release of his critically-acclaimed album Coloring Book—he's popped up at Taste of Chicago and Mamby on the Beach.

During the second half of Jeremih's set at Pitchfork Music Festival (who was featured on Chance's single "Somewhere in Paradise"), Chance took the stage for a brief appearance.

Rumors of his presence have been swirling all weekend long—some thought the Chicago native would make an appearance onstage with collaborator BJ the Chicago Kid, while others held out hope that he'd turn in a verse during Anderson Paak's set.

The Pitchfork alum (Chance headlined the festival's Sunday night lineup in 2015) finally showed up during Jeremih's set on the green stage, arriving to the refrain of Coloring Book single "No Problem." Chance didn't stick around for long, attracting a rush of curious onlookers to join the crowd as he burst into a few verses of "Angels" before promptly leaving the stage. At least we can definitively say that, yes, Chance came to Pitchfork—why wouldn't he?
