The 2017 Emmy Awards wrapped up last night in Los Angeles. Stephen Colbert served as host, and during an extravagant opening musical number he was joined by a very special surprise guest: Chance the Rapper. Watch his appearance in the clip below.

Not one to waste his screentime, Chance delivered a verse that was both political and inciting others to action, sample line: "I love television, it's a pleasant distraction / but imagine taking some action." Using multiple references to TV shows both new and old, Chance also made mention of Laverne Cox and President Trump's proposed ban on transgenders serving in the military in addition to a pointed barb on the subject of police brutality.

Aside from an ongoing copyright infringement lawsuit, Chance has recently been teasing that new music might be headed our way soon. Stay tuned!

In other music news, JAY-Z delivered a stellar set at Meadows Festival over the weekend, watch his set here.
