You’re gonna be seeing a lot of Chance related posts in the near future. Maybe once a year I come across a new artist that has the ability to consume my interest. After listening to his Acid Rap mixtape (check it out a few posts below), Chance clearly stands out in my mind as the most creative lyricist out. Everything about his style, his flow, his storytelling, his cracked melodies, even his ad libs that spaz-out between screeching yelps and lullabied whispers, puts him in a unique lane that should have other artists worried. Even Kendrick needs to step his game up. Yeah, I went there.
If you don’t have time to listen through the entire Acid Rap mixtape, do yourself a favor and at least listen to tracks 3 and 8 (“Cocoa Butter Kisses” and “Favorite Song”). You can stream them from the download link I’ve provided. Chance spits the first verse on both tracks. But don’t sleep on the features in both of them either, which includes Vic Mensa, Twista, and Childish Gambino. They each bring their A-game, clearly aware of company they are in with Chance in the studio.
If those 2 tracks don’t entice you to download the entire tape, then we have nothing left to discuss. Please don’t come back.
