Chance the Rapper posts a photo of their new balcony reno, his wife says it’s not done


This story is the kind of pure content we need to take us into the holiday weekend. Kirsten Corley is married to Chance the Rapper and mother to his two young daughters, Kensli and Marli. Since everyone is looking for a project to do during quarantine, Kirsten decided she would revamp the couple’s balcony in their home. Chance saw her handy work and was so impressed, he snapped a pic and posted it to his Instagram:

Accompanying the photo was Chance’s very enthusiastic caption about how blown-away he was with the finished results:

My Wife just went crazy and redid the balcony! LOOK AT THAT TURF LOOK AT THEM MF COUCHES LOOK AT THAT PLANT SHE THE GREATEST 😍😍😍 DO YO SHIT SIS #exteriordesign

The only problem was: Kirsten wasn’t finished. Chance’s pic showed only half the fabulousness that was yet to come. So, Kirsten corrected him on his own post.

Kirsten Corley is calling out her husband Chance the Rapper over his latest social media post.

The “No Problem” artist took to Instagram on Tuesday to praise his wife’s exterior renovation, sharing a photo of their balcony with his 11.8 million followers.

However, it turns out that Kirsten’s renovation was not quite done just yet, and after seeing her husband’s post, she had to let him know he’d hit the send button a bit too soon.

“lmao babeeeeeee. it’s not done,” Kirsten commented on the post, adding an eye rolling emoji.

After realizing his mistake, Chance replied, “my bad I can take it down. Everybody said it look raw tho.”

After seeing her husband’s comment, Kirsten told him with a laugh, “You jumped the gun just a tad but I love you anyways.”

Ah, bless. First of all, I’m with Chance – I would have been happy with just what I saw in that shot. And few people are going to complain about their spouse/partner being so awe-struck with something they’ve done, they had to brag about it. But if Kirsten has some show-stopping master plan in her mind’s eye and a half-done pic gets published saying, “look what my wife did!” I, too, would correct the situation by saying, “No – look at what your wife is in the middle of doing.” And the mid-project pic worked because I’m can’t wait to see the final product now. Way to build anticipation, Chance!

The whole exchange is so sweet. Also (really) sweet is this IG post Chance put up of Kensli decorating her grandfather, Chance’s dad, Ken Bennett:

    This is sweet and it really made me like him even more. I’ve been trying to redo our back porch and pool deck area but I get stuck for ideas. Excited to see the finished project now!

    I love this!

    This is so sweet. My husband also will get so happy and excited with something I’ve done, even when it’s only halfway finished, and it makes me happy to impress him. There are indeed many sweet men in this world.

      I think it’s really sweet! My husband is like the mom on Despicable Me. Every time I do something he’s reminds me of her: “Eh” Honestly, as long as he doesn’t say he hates it, it means its okay by him *eyeroll* :D

    She is absolutely stunningly gorgeous.

    This is pure content and such a refreshing break from the bleak dumpster fire in Washington.

    That last photo is adorable! I don’t follow a lot of rappers, but I like him a lot. He seems like a really good guy.

    Correction: Future Chicago Mayor, Chance the Rapper :)

    His little girl looks just like him 😍

    There’s a nursing IG (nurselifern) I follow, the content can get pretty serious, and the guy who runs the account post occasional ‘purity intermissions’ with feel good stories and puppy pics. This is an excellent Purity Intermission.

    I love this story! Both his reaction and hers. It’s pretty impressive as-is but I can absolutely see it not being finished. Maybe it’s a male/female thing but my first impression of the pic would have been that it’s a bit bare but I can see a guy thinking that’s it and loving it.

    I love that you can see the toys and the house looks lived in and happy.

    This is SO cute. And it’s so important while sheltering-in-place to really like where you live and to have spaces you can be at peace and relax.

    I just showed my husband Chance’s Instagram post, and he said “That looks VERY familiar.” Lol!! I laid down astroturf on our tiny balcony at our last apartment before adding lights, plants, and furniture. It really added a lot! The patio at our new place is almost exactly how I want it; I’ve been slowly working on it and assembling it over the past 2+ years. We sit out here on our laptops almost every day. It’s where I’m sitting right now!

    I’m a little late to this post, but for anyone who hasn’t seen his latest SNL hosting episode, stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and go watch it. It is HILARIOUS!!! My family has watched it several times and we quote it often. “That’s what’s up!” He should host once a month. Brilliant!
