mp3 | chance the rapper | chain smoker

it's been a while since we've thrown some hiphop on the blog and during our down time we missed some top-notch crud. at the forefront of those neglected is chicago's own chancelor bennett, aka chance the rapper and his unreal acid rap mixtape. facilitated by some of today's better up-and-coming producers and the development of a style that remains fresh in an ultimately stagnant scene, chance owns his approach and delivery in a way that feels authentic and genuine. granted, his form isn't for everyone but afforded a few listens, there's an underlying talent and precision that's virtually undeniable. aside from occasionally sounding too whiny on a couple verses, chance's second mixtape is a cohesive and uniquely rewarding experience. boasting an impressive list of featured artists to boot, it's more than worth a look at. stream one of our favorites, "chain smoker" produced by nate fox above and grab the (right click, save link as) download here. if you like what you hear be sure to grab acid rap in its entirety via audiomack.
