News of the Day:

+ About a week ago, Chance The Rapper lived up to his name by donating $1 million to Chicago Public Schools to give the children of Chicago a chance for a better education. Now, those same pupils are determined to give back to the rapper. In an open letter published on Billboard, three CPS students from Lake View High School thanked the rapper for his continued support of their peers. Of all the celebrities who call Chicago home, they emphasized, his charitable actions and commitment to mentorship and growth are not only inspiring but needed and appreciated by the youth who struggle to prosper in underprivileged areas.

+ RuPaul is officially a married man! While making a guest appearance on Hollywood Today Live, the Drag Race host announced that he tied the knot with his longtime partner Georges LeBar.

+ Sampha took to Twitter to announce the release of his upcoming film directed by artistic genius Kahlil Joseph. (You may remember his name being attached to Beyoncé's Lemonade and Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid, M.A.A.D City.) The short film is based off of Sampha's debut album Process.

+ Netflix bingers, rejoice! The second season of Master of None is officially airing on May 12. This time around, Aziz Ansari is leaving the streets of New York behind and cruising through the hills of Italy on a Vespa. Our calendars are so marked.

+ Jamie Isaac just dropped a remix of "Find the Words" featuring Soloman Faye. The London-based crooner will be releasing a remake album on March 17.
