Following the release of his stellar mixtape Coloring Book, Chance the Rapper is eager to keep the momentum going. He’s announced plans for an event he’s calling the Magnificent Coloring World, which will occur in his hometown of Chicago this weekend.

At the moment, there are few details (and by few we mean basically none) regarding the event other than that it will take place this Saturday, May 21st. Tickets for the mysterious affair — Chance says it’s “not what you think” — are available for purchase on the rapper’s website.

Chance has long paid respect to his stomping grounds. In the past, he’s hosted open mic events for Chicago high schoolers and, just last winter, he held a coat drive for the city’s homeless community. His most recent music video, for Coloring Book’s “Angels”, saw him flying through the city’s skies like a superhero.
