Before performing at the Governor’s Ball Friday night in New York City, Chance the Rapper stopped by “Ebro in the Morning” on HOT 97, a local hip-hop station, to hang out for a bit. During the show, he talked about everything from basketball to Kanye West, but the best part was when Chance the Rapper talked about his brother coming out as bisexual on Twitter earlier this year.

It was a pretty huge thing to do. You’re telling the whole wide world at once when you come out on social media — but Chance loved it. On “Ebro,” he said that after his brother, fellow rapper Taylor Bennett, came out as bisexual, they were able to have a better conversation about it.

“We honestly didn’t talk about it until after he put it out on Twitter,” Chance said. “[That’s one of] the coolest parts about the advancements of social media.”

He added, “We have the closest bond I have with anybody on this earth just because he’s my brother. We’re the same dude, we do all the same things.”
