It’s finally here. The follow up project to the critically acclaimed 10 Day is here. Receiving praise and co-signs from some of the industry’s most respected member, playing sold out shows across the country and acid trips in Mexico; it’s been a crazy year for Chano. With hints of features from artists like Childish Gambino, Ab-Soul, Vic Mensa and Bj The Chicago Kid, Acid Rap quickly became 2013′s most anticipated release. Take a listen below to see if it was worth the wait (hint: it was).
Before Acid Rap drops tomorrow and the entire internet explodes, Chano and ILLROOTS link up to give us the third official single. Produced by Blended Babies, “Smoke Again” features TDE’s Ab-Soul who asks us all to “take a Chance with this rapper”. After watching the video for “Smoke Again”, I don’t really know what other evidence you need to convince you that Chance is bound for stardom. Clap for him. Directed by ILLROOTS, shot and edited by Dylan Knight.
It’s Chance The Rapper’s birthday today. We celebrated the only way we know how. By shooting a video. Watch Chance bopping outside of a Brooklyn bodega to “I Ain’t Word”. Happy 2-0 big guy. Acid Rap April 30th.

Chance. The Rapper. I accidentally found out about Chance at SXSW last year. I was lending a hand to the homies over at Ruby Hornet and helped film their showcase with MTV2. About two hours into the show, this 18 year old kid hopped on stage and yelled “AAHHH. SHUT THE FUCK UP. I’M CHANCE THE RAPPER. I REPRESENT SAVE MONEY. WE ABOUT TO TURN THE FUCK UP”. Then “Fuck You Tahm Bout” came on and I was immediately hooked. Twelve months later we sit here waiting for his follow up project, Acid Rap (releasing on April 30th).
Welp, today we give you a little preview of what to expect from Chance The Rapper’s highly anticipated second mixtape. We went to Mexico and shot some stuff. Look out for a preview of a new song, “Pusher Man”, towards the end. Acid Rap. April 30th. SAVE MONEY.
According to the Twitterverse Chance The Rapper made the most of his time down at South By Southwest this year. James Blake wanted to meet him. He fucking met James Blake. That blew my mind. Anyway, take a look below as NPR filmed his set at the Karma Lounge.
“From the moment he kicked off his 20-minute set with the song “Brain Cells” he owned the crowd, prowling the stage with his fists in the air and inciting fans to shake off their hangovers. His flow is kinetic and the deep-cut soul samples of his newer songs are soothing and hype at the same time.”
With Acid Rap only six weeks away, Chance releases the third single in the form of “Good Ass Intro”. The video, directed by OJ Hays & Andrew Straw, features a cartoon-ized Chance rapping through his own acid trip. Featuring BJ The Chicago Kid, “Good Ass Intro” will only get fans more crazed for the April 30th release date of Acid Rap.
We chopped it up with Chicago musician Chance The Rapper and asked him what he’s currently listening to on his Zune. Take a listen below and grab some extra songs for your weekend playlist. Chance gets a pass for his brevity. It was the tail end of his NYC visit and he had been going hard for four days straight. Acid may or may not have been involved.
Drake – Started From The Bottom
Sharted………….sharted………..sharted from the bottom.
Kendrick Lamar – The Jig Is Up (Dumpin)
The vocal mixes on most Kendrick records usually intrigue me, but specifically the panning on the gun sound that he be making with his mouth. Really portrayed the scene he was trying to paint well. Ya smell me.
Eminem – As The World Turns
I’ve been finishing up this Acid Rap tape, and I’ve been listening to a lot of mid 90s acid rap influenced wrists. Eminem has a lot of influence from Esham, who created acid rap. “As The World Tunrs” has just always been a favorite of mine.
Jay-Z – So Ambitious
Just a very dope record to me. Not much more I can really say.
If you haven’t got opportunity to see Chance The Rapper’s live set yet, FrameLab Films hooks up a nice behind the scenes video to get you up to speed. Be sure to stay on the look out for new tour dates from Chano as he get ready to kick of a tour with Kids These Days right after his performances at this year’s SXSW.
