Chance the Rapper is returning to the UK this summer with two headline dates lined up in addition to his various festival appearances. There's no details on any further UK performances, so you best get to these shows while you've got the 'chance' (sorry).

The rising hip hop star hailing from Chicago will hit London's Electric Brixton towards the end of June 2015 and Manchester's The Ritz at the beginning of July, and he will be joined by the UK's own Snakehips as special guests.

Not only that, but the rapper will also be in London on June 28th for Wireless Festival, before travelling to Portugal for Sumol Summer Fest and back to North America for Ottawa Bluesfest, Pitchfork Music Festvial, Squamish Fest, Bumbershoot and Austin City Limits.

He's just unveiled his debut album too; a collaboration between himself, Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment. Entitled 'Surf', the 16-track record is available to download for free and has already won some serious acclaim since it premiered earlier this year. The album also featured a range of other guests including Raury, Big Sean, Jeremih, J. Cole, B.o.B, Busta Rhymes, Janelle Monáe and others.

Chance The Rapper's last release was the 2013 mixtape 'Acid Rap', which introduced some epic samples and featured such artists as Vic Mensa, Twista and Childish Gambino. But across his short career history, he released his debut mixtape '10 Day' in 2012 and had guest appearances on such tracks as Justin Bieber's 'Confident' and James Blake's 'Life Round Here'.
