Here’s a cool moment that Chance The Rapper dug up for a little IG #TBT! He just shared a video of a developing-music journalist interviewing him back in 2012 for a magazine called “GreenRoom”. The journalist’s name was Melissa Jefferson, now known as Lizzo.

#tbt anybody recognize the woman interviewing me?? Give you a hint we’re playing the same Houston festival in a couple weeks and have the same number of GRAMMYs. Guys, this video is so dope to see. It was 2012, a year before Acid Rap even dropped, and I was being interviewed for a small magazine in Minneapolis called GreenRoom, right after a small show I was playing. I remember it like it was yesterday and it was EIGHT years ago. Wow man. I’ve watched Lizzo work her ass off to become the biggest act in the world and it was nothing but her and her day 1 bestfriends’ hard work, and her own God given Talent. I am immensely proud of her and so inspired by her journey. Life is crazy Tag someone you believe is one day gonna be a superstar ??????

The short clip shows Lizzo asking Chance about some of the styles and artists he’s worked with. He captioned it saying, “It was 2012, a year before Acid Rap even dropped, and I was being interviewed for a small magazine in Minneapolis called GreenRoom, right after a small show I was playing. I remember it like it was yesterday and it was EIGHT years ago.”

Just think how cool the news would be if Lizzo was the journalist behind some of these stories!
