Chance the Rapper is not one to disappoint. As part of his continued efforts to give back to his community in Chicago, he does a monthly “Open Mike” night in partnership with SocialWorks Chicago and the Chicago Public Library. Named in honor of Mike Hawkins, Chance’s mentor who passed three years ago, the event is “a safe space for high school students to share, express and network.”

Monday’s event was the three-year anniversary of Hawkin’s death, so Chance went all out for the event, giving all the students a pair of unreleased, limited-edition Air Jordan Retro 11 shoes.

The shoes are expected to cost $220 once they come out in stores.

In previous years, Chance has brought Kanye, Vic Mensa and Dave Chappelle to the Open Mike nights.
