(AllHipHop News) According to the 20-year-old emcee, he has also added voice-over actor to his list of accomplishments this year.

Chance told Rolling Stone that he recently participated in recording sessions for the second season of Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite where he provided the voice for international icon Bob Marley.

“I had to go in the studio yesterday at Soundscape and record from the script and do the reading. I had to play Bob Marley,” reveals Chance. “I can’t wait until the voiceover people that are professionals hear this and laugh at me, like, ‘Oh, this guy’s such an amateur!'”

Black Dynamite is an animated action-comedy inspired by the 2009 blaxploitation parody film of the same name. The show stars series regulars Michael Jai White, Tommy Davidson, Kym Whitley, and Byron Minns. The program’s first season featured guest appearances by Snoop Dogg, Eddie Griffin, J. B. Smoove, Aries Spears, Charlie Murphy, and more.

During the RS Q&A Chance also comments on his decision to not sign with a major label. “There’s no reason to. It’s a dead industry,” said Chance.

Black Dynamite is set to return to Adult Swim in 2014.
