Chance the Rapper described how, on a recent flight, he received an adorable gesture of kindness from “Only Murders in the Building” actor Martin Short.
“So I just got on this plane with my daughter, and found out our seats weren’t next to each other,” the “No Problem” rapper tweeted on February 26.

“I really ain’t wanna inconvenience anyone by asking them to swap seats, but before I could say anything this kind older gentleman offered his seat to Kensli so we could sit together,” he added. “We both said thank you and as he stands up, I realize it’s THE Martin Short!”
Kensli, 7, was “freaked out” by the encounter, according to Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, because she adored the movie “The Santa Clause 3,” in which Short plays Jack Frost.
“What an awesome person!” the Chicago native added. “SHOUTOUT TO JACK FROST.”
“Martin Short is the only human who really matters,” one commenter wrote beneath Chance’s tweet. “He is a gem!” said another.
When a fan joked that Chance should have sat next to Short himself, Chance responded, “Oh thank you so much, but the little girl will be alright where she is… *displays laptop* ANYWAY, this is a short script I’ve been working on dubbed “Four Amigos!”
Chance whipped his fans into a frenzy last month when he teased a special performance to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his sophomore mixtape, “Acid Rap.”
Despite the fact that the project, which features Twista, Childish Gambino, and Action Bronson, was and continues to be free to download, it wound up charting at No. 63 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums three months after its release due to bootleg downloads on iTunes and Amazon.
It has been viewed over a million times to date.
On February 1, Chance posted an Instagram video montage of clips from the period with the caption, “Who wants a show?”
