Last year Chance The Rapper became an instant favorite of ours. His mixtape #10Day took us to his high school Chicago’s prestigious Jones College Prep, where he got suspended for a week just before prom and graduation. But it also took us further back to young Chancellor growing up in the Windy City, finding himself as a person as well as a rapper. #AcidRap moves us further. This time into the mindset of a 20-year-old wizard with a formidable flow that can switch in an instant and an undulating voice that deftly takes you through the motions of an outer-worldly experience. It’s more mature and more playful at the same time, alternating between juke beats popularized in Chicago and soulful piano medleys. In a musically-stacked 2013, this (note: I’m totally writing this based on the singles and previews) seems to stand out like a beacon of hope. Too far? Forget it. Just download the tape below.
