Featured on here earlier this year, Chicago based Chance The Rapper has been wowing fans with his lyrical delivery for a while now and his first mixtape ‘Acid Rap’ dropped last night. Featuring the likes of Ab Soul, Action Bronson, BJ The Chicago Kid and Twista, it’s certainly lives up to the hype. The singles so far including ‘Juice’, ‘Nana’ and ‘Good Ass Intro’ have been strongly supported by the media with The Sun-Times even declaring ‘Acid Rap’ the most important mixtape since Kanye West’s ‘The College Dropout’.
One of the standout tracks on the mixtape is ‘Favorite Song’ which uses a widely borrowed sample from Betty Wright’s ‘Clean Up Woman’ and features a another favorite rapper of mine Childish Gambino. Download the mixtape here.
