The annual ranking of the most influential young people in business puts Chance on the list (#29) at the tender age of 24, with his net worth a reported $9 million.

He’s done it without the help of a major label recording contract, due to merchandising, ticket sales and endorsement deals.

Chance is putting his money to good use, donating $1 million to his hometown Chicago’s public school system, founding a local nonprofit, SocialWorks, and recently donating 30,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to Chicago students.
