Last month, the greatest boxer the world has ever seen, Muhammad Ali, passed at the age of 74. Last night, Chance the Rapper announced he would be a part of a special tribute to the late legend at this year's ESPYs. Ceremonies for the ESPN-backed award show, kicked off yesterday evening in Los Angeles and will air live on ABC this evening. The announcement makes sense of Chance's recent adventures this week including catching up with Cam Newton and crashing Peyton Manning's retirement party with Justin Timberlake. While further details regarding what the tribute will entail likely won't be released prior, Chance, a long time idolizer of Ali as many of us are, will certainly bring something special to the mix. A tweet from Peter Cottontale hints that we'll likely see a few members of The Social Experiment as well.
The ESPYs air tonight, July 13th at 7:00PM CST on ESPN and ABC.
