Chance The Rapper Tried Out For A Part In 'Straight Outta Compton'

But don't expect to see him in it.

Chance the Rapper. It's a name and an occupation rolled into one. But that doesn't mean the Chicago native is going to box himself into a limited amount of artistic pursuits.

In fact, he really wants to get into acting, and even tried to get cast in "Straight Outta Compton," the upcoming N.W.A biopic.

"I read for [Dr.] Dre," Chano told comedian Hannibal Buress, during their conversation for the new issue of Interview magazine. "But it wasn't in God's plan."

He added that, if he could be on any show on TV right now, it would be "Real Husbands of Hollywood." Plus, after joking about trying out for a role on "Empire" (which he didn't actually do), the 21-year-old explained to Hannibal that, "You know that's not really how the rap world works, right? Terrence Howard, his conference room has a basketball court in it."

It's not just acting that Chance wants to branch out to, though. Expect to hear some stand up comedy on his next tour.

"I'm probably going to do some comedy shows at my new sets. I can be very funny," he said. "You know, I've been dabbling in the comedy world, showing up at random improv shows. Been on stage doing four minute sets."

That tour will likely come after he and The Social Experiment drop Surf, which Chance said would drop without much notice. "The album is very much a Beyoncé kind of thing. So I can't say the date of the project, but I can say that it's super dope."
