Jordan Peele's horror film Get Out hit top of the box office this weekend, and Chance The Rapper loved it so much, he bought all the tickets at a theatre in Chicago so fans could see it for free.

He sent out this tweet and got Chi-City buzzin' to go see the movie at the Chatham Theatre.

On top of supporting Jordan Peele's movie, Chance may have started a trend. Twista tweeted at Chance and said he's got the next movie:

@chancetherapper we gotta keep this going I got the next movie
