So the above album free mixtape is exactly why I get so excited about where hip-hop is going right now; add 20-year-old Chicago-MCChance the Rapper to the constantly-growing list of hip-hop artists under 25 that have begun to consistently put out great, original stuff on a consistent basis (see: Kdot, A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, etc.), and the result is an influx of great talent that makes the future of hip-hop that much more exciting.
That being said, there’s no reason Chance can’t blow up just like the rest of those previously mentioned; fine, this is a little different, but there’s no denying that it’s just outrageously awesome…and bumps. (Plus when someone says “Lean all on the square/That’s a fuckin’ rhombus” you listen):
“Smoke Again” (feat. Ab-Soul)
And that’s just one song on the tape…
Here’s another one for good measure:
“So Good (Good Ass Intro)”
And, finally, one that dropped a few months ago but is still hot:
And if you haven’t yet then download his new tape “Acid Rap” by clicking right here, and do it this very second - you will thank me later.
To commemorate my attendance Last.FM streamed the concert live and has begun to release that footage of the concert over the past couple of days. These videos (complete with the most annoying advertisement ever before each one…) are below not just for you to enjoy the hotness that is Big Boi live, then at least to observe the hotness that is myself and Jimbo gettin down on the concert floor, front and center, for the cameras:
“Do Dirty” x “ATLien” x “Skew-it-On-the-Bar-B” x “Rosa Parks”
