According to The Source, in a recent interview Rowe spoke out about how Chance the Rapper helped her battle cancer. She said, “If I ever meet [Chance the Rapper], I’m gonna just say, ‘Thank you for getting me through chemo.’” While going through treatment her son made her a playlist of music that would help uplift her spirits during her drive to chemo.
Rowe said, “Every day we’d go to chemo, and it’s about a 20-minute drive, and I had to go every day for 30 days. We’d listen to Chance the Rapper. Every day, [my son] would be like, ‘All right, what song do you want?’ I’m like, ‘I want “Blessings.”’ I want “Sunday Candy.” We know that whole album.” She was so grateful for Chance and we hope she meets him one day.
