GRAMMY AWARD-winning Chance The Rapper said Get Out, a film that dares to reveal the horror of liberal racism in America, was the “best film across any genre in a while”.

In fact, he loved it so much he bought out all the showings at a hometown Chicago theatre and urged people to enjoy Jordan Peele’s directorial debut on him.

“I bought all the tickets to ‪#GetOut‬ at Chatham Theatre on 87th Just pull up with ID and enjoy the movie,” he tweeted.

“All day guys, come thru! Bring whoever, it’s free I just want you to see it on 87th. There’s a few more showings today! ‪#GetOut.”‬

‪He added: “‬Just pull up with ID and enjoy the movie.”

Chatham 14 confirmed with The Huffington Post that Chance indeed performed this very kind act.

“Chance came to the theater unannounced and purchased all of the available tickets for ‘Get Out’ on Sunday then tweeted out to his fans,” a representative from the theater told HuffPost. “The tickets were gone within minutes.”

Get Out, which stars British actor Daniel Kaluuya, raked in $30.5 million in its opening weekend against a budget of $4.5 million.
