This week, videos surfaced of a 16-year-old Chance the Rapper (then “Chano”) freestyling in what looks like a music room at his high school. The clips, which were posted in May 2009 and each have less than 5,000 views as of today, feature young Chance rapping over other classmates riffing on live xylophones and percussion.

In the second video, Chance goes three rounds with classmate Monster Mike. It doesn’t seem like either of them wins the battle—though Chance compliments Mike—but they both show a lot of potential.

They are still in high school though, so expect an abundance of jokes about beating off.
