Actor Alec Baldwin (30 Rock, The Departed) raps and Chance The Rapper beatboxes in a video uploaded to Instagram.
Alec Baldwin may have had a rocky 2014 but you cannot dismiss him as selfish. The actor was in Chicago this week at a fundraiser for Young Chicago Authors (YCA), an organisation which encourages young people to participate in community issues through storytelling, verse, and spoken word. Chance The Rapper credits YCA with building and developing him “into the leader [he has] become”.
In the short video, Alec raps lines from Carl Sandburg’s “Chicago” poem while Chance offers up his beatbox skills:

This is me beatboxing while Alec Baldwin raps, he is for the people. Him, Alfred Woodard and Ali from Tribe came thru the city to help raise money for YCA, the organization that built and developed myself and @Malcolmlondon into the leaders we have become. Give it up for them. Beautiful leaders we can all learn from #Chicago #LongLiveTheYoung #YCA
The 56-year-old shared his delight at being on stage with Chance for the “Louder Than A Bomb” fundraiser:
