    Chance the Rapper is going on a religious "sabbatical" to "learn the Word of God," NBC News reported

    The 25-year-old Chicago native who has called himself a "Christian rapper" announced his plans on Instagram

    "I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical," he said in an Instagram post on Dec. 7. "I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with." 

    He has since posted updates without disclosing some details, such as his location. The rapper said his decision was influenced by the birth of his nephew. He is "the first boy of the next line," and "he needs his uncle to be educated," Chance the Rapper said.
