Chance The Rapper’s Acid Rap earned a Best Mixtape nomination at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards. The reviews website Metacritic lists Acid Rap with an 86/100 score which signifies universal acclaim.

In addition, then-President Barack Obama added the Acid Rap track “Acid Rain” to his 2016 Summer Playlist . Chance rereleased Acid Rap on streaming services in June 2019. It peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart that year.

Chance The Rapper’s ‘Acid Rap’ Show In Chicago Sold Out So Fast That He Added Two More In New York And Los Angeles

Aaron Williams

Ten years ago, Chance The Rapper — fka Tony Jizzle — released his breakout mixtape Acid Rap , changing the trajectory of his then-burgeoning career — and of Midwestern hip-hop , if you subscribe to his view of things. To commemorate the occasion, The Rapper announced a 10th-anniversary concert in his hometown Chicago, which sold out in moments.

The demand for his performance — he hasn’t toured since canceling his tour for debut album The Big Day in 2019 — was so high that he’s responded by adding two new shows to his schedule, one in Los Angeles and one in New York. The New York show will take place on August 26 at the Barclays Center, while the LA show is on September 21 at the Forum. Tickets for the new shows go on sale this Friday, May 5 at 10 am local time. You can find more information at LiveNation.com .

In addition to the new shows, Chance was also finally able to add the breakout single “Juice” back to the streaming versions of the mixtape, which was reissued in 2019 without it due to sample clearance issues. Despite missing one of its fan-favorite tracks, Acid Rap was able to break onto the Billboard charts for the first time, becoming his highest-charting release yet at No. 5.

Chance the Rapper, real name Chancelor Bennett, is an American hip hop recording artist all the way from Chicago in Illinois, USA.

Chance the Rapper was born in 1993 on April 16. He showed an affinity for music from a young age and was very musical at school, forming a hip hop duo whilst still in high school. It was during his school days that he recorded his first full length project, a mixtape he titled ’10 Day’. Despite being somewhat of a troublemaker, having been suspended for weed related activities, Bennett had big musical aspirations and in December 2011 he released his first song, ‘Windows’ and announced his ’10 Day’ project. After a further year of polishing his music, Bennett finally released the album on April 3 2012. It was received very well locally and made available to download via Datpiff, which it subsequently was over 250,000 times. This staggering success marked just the start of Bennett’s career and his transformation into Chance the Rapper.

Chance’s second mixtape release, entitled ‘Acid Rap’ earned him mainstream recognition and he soon began to earn a following. Released on April 30 2013, it was certified double platinum and downloaded 800,000 times. It was also nominated for Best Mixtape at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards that year. It was listed on multiple top 50 album lists that year and led to Chance touring across the US for the first time.

Live reviews

Chance took the stage about a half hour later and everything started out pretty normal. The word ‘angels’ was scrawled across the multi-level LED screens, topped with a halo. He wore his signature “3” cap, white t-shirt, and black jacket as the crowd lost their shit. Donnie Trumpet was joined by another member of The Social Experiment stage left, while a drummer was situated stage right. The live instrumentation brought something unique to the show, but the band kept themselves hidden in the shadows most of the set, thus allowing Chance the spotlight he deserved.

Proving himself much more than a studio rapper, Chance’s flow was impeccable, even when he had to compete with the thousands of fans who wanted to go bar for bar with him. The sense of normality continued through many of his more debaucherous tracks from Acid Rap, but that all changed after “Favorite Song”. That’s when Carlos showed up again. A life-sized lion walking on two legs, voiced by Detroit comedian HaHa Davis, became the moral compass of the show. Helping to guide Chance’s own good kid, m.A.A.d city narrative, the lion’s first request was to “take it waaay back,” which Chance did with “Brain Cells” from #10Day.

Chance The Rapper is as famous for how he’s managed his career as he is for the songs contained on his trio of mixtapes. Having never signed to a label, he has been able to maintain complete artistic freedom. That freedom was on full display on Tuesday night. Whether he was battling his demons in the form of stuffed animals, singing a duet with a furry female friend, or leading a choir of a dozen animatronic birds with an spread-winged angel behind him, Chance made it clear he was going to do whatever the fuck he wanted to do.

“I just do me!” he proclaimed at one point, before thanking the crowd for allowing that to happen. And that’s the difference between Chance and so many other braggadocious rappers. Sure, he can get down with the best of them on tracks like “No Problem” and “Mixtape”, but he also gets sentimental as hell on tracks like “Juke Jam” and “Same Drugs”.

And when was the last time you saw a hip hop show go full-blown gospel? I’m not just talking “Ultralight Beam” either. That song was incredible, of course, but it wasn’t until “How Great” turned the Fillmore into a legitimate church that I realized how much Chance’s religion plays into his live shows. He continued his role as a preacher through “Finish Line / Drown” and “Blessings (Reprise)”; the congregation consuming every word like communion.

I honestly didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at that point in the night, because as serious as the message might have been, it was hard to ignore the fact that the whole scene looked like something that should be going down on Sesame Street rather than Colfax Avenue.

Chancellor Bennett aka CHANCE THE RAPPER has to be one of the greatest performers under the age of 25! Chance has the ability to completly capture not only his target audience but every security guard and policemans' full attention as well. His presence on the stage CANNOT be ignored by anyone that can hear. Even his opening acts were excellent, setting a perfect foundation for an amazing night. Young & Sick, Sweater Beats, and Travis Scott were extremely enticing and had the crowd well warmed up by the time Chance hit the stage. Chance's concert was a perfect balance of rave and kickback performing songs from "10 Day" and introducing brand new material that had us all singing the course before he even started the song. Aside from the unforgettable performa by Chance, I MUST shout out the Social Experiment, which I believe is his band and crew. His band, alone, is superb and its incredibly inspiring to see people my age being masters of their art. Luckily, Chance featured the band during the performance of the hidden track "Paranoia" and they shined as if they were performing at Carnegie Hall. Im really glad that he genuinely expressed his love for his fans with an exteneded version of "That's Love" dedicating individual "I love you's" to fans. What made it so touching was that fact that he requested that the fans look him in the eyes when he pointed and spoke to them giving each phrase an authentic fell. This was my third concert of many more to go for Chance the Rapper and I will be looking forward to seeing Sweater Beats and Young & Sick in concert very soon. For those of you who love live music and dont mind sweating to the beat, CHANCE THE RAPPER concerts are for YOU!!! He performs for YOU!

At the ripe age of 21 Chance the Rapper is one of newest and youngest faces in hip-hop. Despite being so young Chancellor Bennett already has two mix tapes and a few tours under his belt. His second mixtape ‘Acid Rap’ awarded him universal claim, it’s gone double platinum on DatPiff, BET named it one of the bst mix tapes of 2013, and Pitchfork gave it an 8.4 and the “Best New Music” title. While we wait for Chance to release a full length album he’s been putting out a few features with the likes of Childish Gambino, Chuck Inglish, and others. He’s also been touring the country and getting ready for the summer festival season.

Chance differs from most hip-hop MCs in that hehas the privilege of touring with a live drummer and a keyboardist who help add to the atmosphere and create a concert like experience rather than a DJ on a Macbook making beats. Chance also has a few friends help him out on stage with some ambient lighting to create some special effects that help you get in the mood for some of the more popular cuts from ‘Acid Rap’ like “Pusha Man,” “Cococa Butter Kisses,” and “Favorite Song.”If you’re planning on catching Chance the Rapper soon, brush up on those free mixtapes, he has a diehard fan base that will be up front and center for the show, you don’t want to be left alone in the dark not knowing any of the lyrics, hooks, or beats.

Chance the rapper is arguably the most unique voice in the world of hip hop today. We live in a time when rap is one of the most predominate genres in chart music. However Chance with just pure talent and virtually no commercial backing has become one of the biggest mc’s on the block. Starting with his self-produced 2011 debut ’10 Day’ it was clear that he was a voice to be heard. This was followed by his critically and commercial successful free mixtape masterpiece ‘Acid Rap’ which launched in 2013 and is still touring. As a live musician, Chance literally blew me away with sheer mad energy opening with ‘Everybody’s Something’ and several other tracks before even introducing himself. With a live backing band his live shows are more reminiscent of a rock concert and his crowd involvement makes him as much of a powerful frontman as a rapper. Song highlights included ‘Pusha Man’, ‘Cocoa Butter Kisses’, ‘Braincells’, ‘Paranoia’, ‘Juice’ and a beautiful cover of Ziggy Marely’s ‘Believe in Yourself’. To conclude the night he proclaimed his love to us, we love you too Chance and you will be welcomed back in London with open arms.

I don't normally go to many Rap shows but when I heard chance was coming to London I couldn't pass up the opportunity. Chance certainly didn't let the crowd down. He had so much energy and was visibly happy to be on that stage. This attitude always has a great effect on the crowd. It was one of the best crowd atmospheres I have seen in a while. Crowds normally take a few songs to get warmed up but not tonight. Right from the first song chance had the crowd in the palm of his hand singing along. He appeared to change the setlist to keep the crowd involved and despite the sweaty July heat he managed to keep the crowd singing, shouting and jumping along right until the very end.

Second time around, already saw them on this tour and was still great. Mostly stuff from Coloring Book, I would love to get more from SURF and Acid Rap because this group (The Social Experiment) goes a long way back and have done amazing things.

I personally love the fact that it's live music, trumpet, drums, keys, vocals. I don't see that a lot in Hip-Hop and I think it makes a huge difference.

I sat in the bowl, pretty far from the stage but heard great, the venue is pretty good overall.

Support Chance! He's still passes out music, this is how he earns his living. They deserve it.

I can honestly say that this was the greatest night of my life. He gave such an amazing performance and it was so heartfelt. He sang all the songs we wanted to hear and I was not disappointed at all. He gave off so much energy and the stage looked amazing. I wish I could go again and definitely will be looking for his concerts if he comes back to Oakland. He is such an amazing performer and you can tell he just loves to do it. He brought based god and kehlani with him onstage as a surprise and it was insane! 10/10 would go again for sure.

I absolutely love Chance, but this was basically a BBC Live Extra showcase of lesser-known England DJs with Chance playing 2 minutes sections of some of his hits from Colouring Book and then finishing after maybe 25 mins. The crowd started leaving halfway through his set as he was the final act, and you could tell he didn't really care to be there. I was super amped to see Chance but this was a terrible show. He rapped perhaps 1/3 of the lyrics and then did a couple shout out to the crowd then left. Bad job BBC Live extra!

Fantastic. The dj opening act had the crowd hype. Hell he even played adele and the crowd was singing all the words in perfect unison with their cellphone lights on. Then of course chance was amazing. great visuals and even had fireworks and streamers and pyro. He did alot of his new stuff but a few of his fan favorites like cocoa butter kisses and this my jam. Of his new stuff he did the songs that speak to my heart like blessings and all we got which was real live. all in all it was a fantastic show

I've seen Chance with the Social Experiment twice now and both shows were amazing. Chance has a way of really connecting with his audience. You can tell special care is taken to make a dynamic, inspiring and entertaining show. You can also see the growth in performance quality over time. If you're a Chance/SoX fan make sure you get out to one of their shows. Definitely worth it! Not to mention their opening acts are usually pretty dope. Big shout out to D.R.A.M for his performance in Detroit!

Chance the Rapper Will Always Be Proud of Acid Rap

chance the rapper acid rap tour nyc

In 2013, as new albums from Jay-Z, Drake, and Kanye topped the charts, a small mixtape you couldn’t even buy on iTunes became one of the year’s most talked about releases. Chance the Rapper ’s Acid Rap felt and sounded different from everything else on the market: An exuberant, introspective collection of rap songs drenched in soul, jazz, and gospel influences. Though much of the subject matter skewed serious, the Chicago native’s playfulness shined through: His grizzly, charming sing-song delivery; his scattered yells of “AHHH!” over a honky-tonk piano in “Juice,” that school-house taunt refrain on “Nana.” Listening to Acid Rap felt like cutting class with your best friend, and with features from the likes of Vic Mensa, Twista, Childish Gambino, and Action Bronson, it turned Chance the Rapper into the biggest indie rapper in America.

Ten years later, much has changed for Chance, hip-hop, and America at large. The 30-year-old rapper, who is currently embarking on a mini-tour honoring Acid Rap ’s anniversary, admits rap doesn’t sound nearly as fun as it used to. “I think if I had to blame it on something, I would just say times is hard,” he told me for a recent episode of Into It . But Acid Rap still remains a classic, and Chance is excited about where rap is headed as well as the legacy of his breakthrough mixtape and the days before he became a star. “Right after Acid Rap dropped, I was just running around trying to do small shows or people’s little local radio stations,” he recalls. “Whatever I could do to make it get heard.” Clearly, it worked.

Listen to the full interview from Into It below or read on for an excerpt of our conversation.

Where was Chance ten years ago when Acid Rap was released? What did your life look like?  I mean, I didn’t have money, but I also didn’t have kids. I was living at my parents’ house and just trying to make this dream work. This was my second mixtape under the moniker Chance the Rapper. And I had dropped a mixtape the year before this called 10 Day . That was all about me getting suspended from high school and that landed me on a national tour with Donald Glover as an opener. Now, nobody in the crowd knew who I was. I think the preparation of that tour put me in the right mindset as a performer to really push to make this mixtape heard. And then I got picked up to go on tour with Mac Miller, who was incredibly impactful to my career and to my understanding of the industry. And soon after that I did my first tour, and that was when I first made some money. I know I keep talking about money like it doesn’t matter, but if you asked me about ten years ago—

It mattered. —It mattered a lot.

Acid Rap really captured this youthful exuberance. Not every song was happy, but a lot of it was and there was this energy that crackled.  For me, what was so cool was that it was real underground. Music was still very heavy on the iTunes side. This is before any large-scale streaming service. Around that time I was trying to shop for deals, and it just wasn’t really working out the way that I wanted to. Not that people weren’t trying to sign me, but they wasn’t trying to give me no control. We put together this mixtape with my own money. And the way it spread was just so different. Like, SoundCloud, DatPiff, LiveMixtapes.

I had the DatPiff app on my iPhone just to listen to it. A lot of people have that story. The music felt like it belonged to people. It felt like it was something you had to go outside of your typical iTunes or buying a CD from FYE or Walmart or Best Buy. You had to find it. Somebody had to tell you about it.

When did you know that Acid Rap was blowing up? I did a listening party the day of the release in Chicago where I rapped a couple of the songs but played the mixtape all the way through. And I remember there being a line around two blocks long of people waiting outside. The difference between that listening party and the listening party from my 10 Day mixtape, it was just so different. I went on tour in Europe that same year in 2013. I got two really cool offers. I got brought to do a few dates with Eminem in Ireland.

Eminem in Ireland surrounded by whites. Yeah, I was in Dublin, surrounded by whites, and it was a lot. We did this place called Slane Castle. It was 90,000 people. I went from opening for Mac Miller and Donald Glover for 2,500-cap rooms in America where I was kind of still struggling, to going to foreign countries with Eminem. Macklemore took me on in the same year. I was playing these sold-out rooms where the entire audience didn’t really know who I was, but in a lot of cases didn’t even speak English. And so, there was a really big barrier between me being recognized for this body of work that I put out that I was seeing going crazy in the States, but being stuck overseas. When I came back, I did my own little mini tour. It started off as 35 dates. It got extended to 50 dates. I did every major and small market around the U.S. and all sold-out shows.

Is that when you knew the album blew up? Yes, that was the longest answer you probably ever got. But, that’s when I felt it.

What’s your favorite song on Acid Rap ? Probably “Acid Rain,” just because it’s the most pure to me. It’s a long single-verse song with no hook that’s just me rapping very transparently and talking about issues that I had with drugs, with some of my closest friends, with the PTSD after I saw my friend get killed. It was a lot of stuff that I would not normally talk about so plainly in my music.

chance the rapper acid rap tour nyc

In spite of having these songs that deal with PTSD and drug use, the vibe in Acid Rap is often joyful and fun. When I look at Acid Rap and Coloring Book together and compare it to stuff I hear now, it seems like none of the biggest men in rap are as happy or having as much fun as you were on those albums. I feel like women in rap right now are having fun. But the men seem sad. Is it fair to say that? Yeah, I don’t think they’re happy. What a lot of us experience is melancholy, sadness, displacement, poor relationships, poverty, attacks on your humanity or your masculinity … It’s a lot. I was lucky to make it off being different, but a lot of people make it off of a different angle of the same shit. I feel for niggas. I feel bad. I was just watching a video on Instagram, somebody I know from Chicago and they was like, “Why you think we be in the club feeling some type of way, feeling on edge just because we listening to fucking four hours of murder music about the most despair you ever seen?” Most of us have lost somebody to violence or witnessed some type of violence that scarred us. I don’t think that there’s this master plan from all these niggas that made it out of poverty to continue this fucked-up cycle of producing dark, angry music. I think that the powers that be are a lot of times in control of what direction we’re going.

Can you put your finger on when an actual shift began or what caused it? I think shit is just worse. In terms of public safety, even the weather. The Earth is not as lit as it was in 2013. I think if I had to blame it on something, I would just say times is hard. Everybody is just rapping what they know.

I want to talk a bit about Kanye’s influence on you, especially at the time of Acid Rap . How was his work affecting the way you made that album? I mean, “Good Ass Intro” is a direct sample from the intro to a Kanye West mixtape that came out when I was in high school called the Get Well Soon mixtape. And then, there’s six interpolations towards the end of the record, and those are a lot of interpolations of Kanye-produced beats for Common or Twista or himself. But since ‘04, I’ve been extremely influenced by Ye’s music and his art.

One of the things I think of a lot in your journey in the last ten years since Acid Rap was entering this space where as a Black man in hip-hop who is famous, you got to be a little outspoken on politics. But I’ve heard less from you on that front these days. What has been your philosophy in the last ten years about how much you dabble in those spaces?  I think before, my understanding of politics was through the governing bodies and systems in the United States. I’ve just, I guess kind of become a little, I don’t know.

A little what? Jaded? It’s not even jaded. It’s just like I don’t believe in that shit anymore.

I want to unpack that. Are you saying you don’t believe in electoral politics anymore to effect change, or are you saying something else? I’m also like a whole fucking public figure, so I don’t want to dissuade anybody from whatever it is that they believe is important. And we Black, so it’s a very big deal for us to be able to have the right to vote and to vote without being terrorized.

I think I’ve gotten a better understanding of my identity and placement in the world outside of notoriety or money because in certain spaces, neither one of those matter when somebody can tell that I’m Black. I think Black folks, our natural destiny in the near future is to collectivize and create a more homogenous body. We attach so many other categories to our identity that kind of keep us splintered. I think the only time that we’re allowed to be Black people is when we’re the Black vote. And again, I’m not trying to dissuade anybody from voting or from making their voice heard or any shit like that. I’m very focused on politics. I’m just focused on it in a different space.

This is the most guarded I’ve heard you in this conversation. I told myself I wasn’t even going to talk about shit like that anymore. To tell you that I don’t want to talk about it, I got to give a long explanation.

I feel like when you talk about politics, you are so much more aware of who’s hearing it and how they’re hearing it, and you’re more guarded on that stuff than you are on just the music. Would it be fair to say that? It’s one of the more important things that I could talk about. And there’s a great sense of like, responsibility. I think any time I get a question about it, the first thing that happens is my brain fills up with all the things that I’m mad about. The second thing that happens is I start to think about how I could be misquoted or misunderstood. And then I try and speak on it with both parts of my brain working at the same time, and it comes off as guarded.

I’m not even as worried about a quote being misunderstood. I’m more worried about myself being misunderstood because a quote misdirects everybody. That’s just the game that we play though.

It’s the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. You’re seeing all the press coverage and everyone’s talking about the history and where it came from. But, I’m not seeing as much conversation about homophobia, or sexism, or the glorification of extreme wealth in hip-hop. Do you think our conversation about hip-hop turning 50 is as critical as it should be? That’s a good question. I think it’s always a good time to have a conversation about how we could be better. But I also think that there’s a time and space for celebration. Hip-hop is the dominating culture in terms of fashion, music, and art. It mobilizes all of the capitalist movements, advertising, and marketing. All of these things are using our car to get there. It’s like our car is supposed to have us in the front seat driving, and we’re just still in the back seat arguing.

We do have a huge problem with homophobia. We do have a huge problem with sexism. We do have a huge problem with misogyny, with violence, with over-romanticizing extreme wealth and with a lot of stuff. I hate to sound like I keep flip-flopping, but hip-hop is a reflection of the world. It’s not just a promotional tool. It’s also what people are experiencing and what people grew up understanding. We do need to fix hip-hop to fix the people, but like, that’s what I’m tasked with I think.

Do you think things are getting better at all on any of those fronts? Because, I’m not sure. I’m going to say no. So I started this festival this year called the Black Star Line Festival, and the goal of it is to create free weeklong activations in different Black countries where we can collectivize and share ideas. I think one of the biggest hurdles in this is that a lot of Black countries outside of the U.S. demonize or flat out have made being gay illegal. And so, a big, big thing that I’ve been trying to figure out is how can I collectivize people under this umbrella of Blackness whilst also eliminating some of those other identifiers, like the division of nationality or the division of religion, or most importantly, the division of gender and sexuality. It’s a tough thing because I’m also an outsider. As much as we centralize ourselves as Americans, I’m a foreigner in all these spaces.

We should define this festival more clearly for folks who might not know what’s going on.  I had some conversations with my grandma, and she was just teaching me about the global Black identity. After learning more about Marcus Garvey and his efforts to create Black mobility, I realized that I was never given an opportunity to tour Africa. The only show that I ever did on the continent was in South Africa, which is typically where we go when bigger artists go over there. But, I’ve been in every nook and cranny in Europe. I’ve played Asia, Australia, South America. But, in order for me to get to West Africa, I would have to put on my own concert. In going to Ghana, I realized that the infrastructure and appetite existed for not only me to play a show, but so many other artists. We ended up putting it on this past year with myself, T-Pain, Erykah Badu, Dave Chappelle, Vic Mensa, Tobe Nwigwe, Jeremih. It really put a better understanding and a new identity on all of us where we don’t have to be Black Americans, we don’t have to be Ghanaians, we don’t have to be Africans.

It’s about the collective. Exactly, we got to be brothers and sisters.

That seems so not what the predominant message of American hip-hop is right now. Well, it’s also like every once in a while, you see a new white rapper or Hispanic rapper that pops up and they’re doing a cartoonish, buffoonish interpolation. They’re blowing up, and they have the budget to market and the money to pay for Instagram posts. That creates a snowball effect of more people feeling like that’s what it is to be hip-hop, that’s what it is to be Black. So it’s like we are all in this cycle.

I mean, I listen to a lot of violent music. I like violent music. But, the fact that that’s the most successful music out there is not necessarily by our design. I don’t think that’s Black people’s goal. I live in Chicago. When you asked me about a turning point, Chicago changed everything. There was a wave of music that came out right around the same time as Acid Rap . I hope that this doesn’t come off as giving blame, but the popularization of what we had going on here definitely changed the landscape.

You’re talking about drill music. Yeah. Drill music specifically in Chicago, blowing up the way it did, influenced the entire world. There’s Italian drill music, there’s Chinese drill music.

Listen, there’s a long tale of Chief Keef to be told. Yeah, and that’s what I’m saying and that’s what I don’t want, I can’t blame Keef …

This is the life he lived. He was speaking his truth. Literally. For me, I think that if we are to move towards upper mobility, towards liberation, towards acceptance, towards self-love, it’s going to come through our tool that’s lasted 50 years. Hip-hop didn’t just last because we let it last. The same shit that happened to all the people that Elvis fucked over and the Beach Boys fucked over, that happened in hip-hop. That’s happening today in hip-hop. Hip-hop has survived, and I think it has a divine reason to because it is our tool for Black liberation. It’s just waiting on its right moment.

What I’m hearing is you received a bit of an education since Acid Rap was released, on what hip-hop means, what Blackness means, and how an artist like Chance the Rapper fits into that. What do you think has been the biggest shift in terms of the way you think about hip-hop and Blackness since Acid Rap was released ten years ago? I look at it all as one day. Acid Rap was yesterday to me. I also did a lot of drugs, so I have terrible memory-loss issues. But, I would say the biggest thing that changed me was a phone conversation I had with my grandma. She got my daughter Kensli some kids’ books. One on Juneteenth, which I didn’t think was too heavy, but still a little bit much for a 5-year-old. But also, there was one on the Tulsa race riot. And so, I called her and I was like, “Hey, you know I love you, but what is this? Do you really want me to read these to her?” And she just really taught my ass. What she was saying was that my parents’ generation, people born in the late ‘60s, mid-’60s, had to be taught as a means of survival that racism had died out, that people don’t see color, and the effects of Jim Crow and and the burning of Black cities were all solved so that their kids weren’t running around getting they ass beat in the streets. Because, they had witnessed firsthand how vicious and violent the U.S. as a society would be to those people. She told me that she was very proud of the changes that she was seeing out of my generation and this information age that we live in where people are actually allowed to know the truth. So I think her telling me the importance of imparting that information on my daughter made me realize how important it is that I do that education for myself.

What advice do you wish your grandmother would’ve called you with the day before Acid Rap was released? I remember my grandma said this crazy prayer over me when I was working on Acid Rap where she said, “I prayed to God that everything that you do that is not like Him will fail and crumble.” And I was like, “Did you just put a curse on me? I’m trying to get on. I’m trying to make it.”

That’s some Black grandmother ish right there. Right? I think she would say the same prayer. I’m in the same boat. If I was to talk to myself ten years ago, I would just say, “I’m proud of you. Keep doing everything you’re doing the same way. You’re fearless, you’re dedicated, you’re honest, and do what you’re doing.”

The ‘Acid Rap’ Interview: Chance The Rapper Looks Back 10 Years Later

As 'Acid Rap' reaches its 10 year anniversary, Chance the Rapper reflects on the legacy and impact of the mixtape, and how the era could have led to his death.

Acid Rap,  arguably Chance the Rapper’s best project , also represents the era that could have killed him. 

“I think if I hadn’t had my spirit tugged on, literally, and a calling to become a better version of myself, then I would’ve died,” Chance says calmly from Complex’s New York City studio, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the pivotal mixtape. “I would just be the representative of acid, and I’m so much more.” 

With time, Chance proved to be much more than the poster child for psychedelic raps. Before the Chicago multi-hyphenate made a drastic lifestyle change and carved out a lane for himself with his gospel-leaning project  Coloring Book,  Chance was just a 20-year-old kid making music with friends in his city.  Acid Rap  captures a specific moment in time for Chicago, reflecting a new sound that was being born parallel to the Chicago drill boom from Chief Keef.

For the fans that  Acid Rap  resonates with the most, it reflects a specific period in their lives: the transformative years of self-discovery. “I feel like that’s what  Acid Rap  is,” Chance says now. “It’s a whole bunch of questions and as time goes on, you find some of those answers.”

Those questions come in the form of 14 tracks, bonded by vibrant horns, lush production, and tongue-twisting bars—a living, breathing product of the Windy City. Crafted entirely in the city, over the course of just one year, it features several beloved artists and producers from the region like Noname, Vic Mensa, Twista, Nate Fox, and Peter CottonTale.

While the mixtape is named Acid Rap,  despite popular belief, Chance the Rapper was not on acid during the majority of the recording process, and he stopped using the drug just a month after its release.

“I had to come to myself and realize and remember that I was not making those songs off acid,” Chance recalls, pointing out that he drew a lot of inspiration from his acid experiences (and dabbled in the drug while picking out beats) but wasn’t on acid during the bulk of the actual recording process. “I may have found some beats I liked off of acid, but it was  me  making the songs. And I think that was probably the key thing that I learned from that experience.”

These days, one of the most common narratives around the project is that fans miss “ Acid Rap  Chance,” or more specifically the style of music he was releasing at that time. Chance doesn’t blame them for that sentiment. In his mind, he recognizes that  Acid Rap  represents a specific moment in time in many of his fans’ lives, and he believes it’s the artist’s responsibility to grow out of that space more than it is theirs.

“It’s really on us,” he explains. “How much do we care about a like or a comment that says ‘This is fire,’ or a meme that says ‘I got a triple-double on a collab song.’ Fuck all that shit, you know what I’m saying? Those people do not go to sleep with you. They can’t take care of your kids. They won’t recognize you unless you’re wearing a 3 hat.”

Today, Chance is more than  Acid Rap  and the 3 hat. He is a reflection of independence and proof that it takes a village to raise a star. 

In honor of the 10-year anniversary , Chance reflects on some of his fondest memories from the making of the mixtape, why he’s happy he left acid behind (but isn’t opposed to trying it again), and why he believes  Acid Rap  to be the greatest project of all time. The conversation with Complex, lightly edited for clarity, is below.

How does it feel that  Acid Rap  is a decade old now? It does feel crazy. I feel it, though, because it’s been so many experiences since I dropped it. Right after that, I went on tour with Mac Miller, opened up for Eminem, and did my first headlining tour: The Social Experiment tour. And that feels so distant from where I am now. 10 years seems like less than the amount of time. Feels like it was 20 years ago for me.

You  told Zane Lowe  that you feel  Acid Rap  is the greatest project ever. Why do you feel that way? I think  Acid Rap  is what it is because of how vulnerable I was in making it, and how real the whole process was. It was a lot of people that came together to make  Acid Rap . It wasn’t just me, it was so many vocalists and producers that came together to make it. And then the features, everybody that was on it went on to do great things, like Action Bronson, Ab-Soul, Donald Glover, Noname, Saba. We were all very young and hungry 10 years ago. And not that anybody wasn’t established, but we were all hungry. I think it was just a product of people wanting to make something that they could be happy with and be vulnerable. I think Acid Rap  gave that space to all those people.

What are some of your fondest memories from those recording sessions? The night that we linked up with Noname and BJ the Chicago Kid. It was the same session that we did the backing vocals for the intro, and BJ’s also on “Everybody’s Something.” It wasn’t like, “OK, here’s this track, let’s write to it together.” It was like, “Here are all these songs that I made. Do any of these speak to you? What would you like to add?” And that same night, Fatimah [Noname] did the verse on “Lost.” It was just us three in the studio, kicking it super hard. I remember my dad came by and it was his first time hearing a lot of the songs and he was so excited.

{ "id": 132215521 } “I think  Acid Rap  is what it is because of how vulnerable I was in making it and how real the whole process was.”

But I think there are so many different phases that  Acid Rap  went through. There was the whole time that I was trying to secure beats and trying to figure out what the sound of it was going to be. I was traveling a lot. I went to SXSW for the second time and met Nate Fox who made “Juice,” “Favorite Song,” “Chain Smoker,” and “Pusha Man.” And I got a pack of beats from him and I got a beat from Jake One to make “Acid Rain.” There were all these different moments. Traveling to New York for the first time, getting called by all these labels off of the success from  10 Day , and using that free flight to bring my director pal Austin Vesely and shoot the “Juice” video in Times Square. A lot of stuff just came together. It was getting it out the mud.

Are there any songs you wish you made a music video for back then? A lot of people ask me why there’s no music video for “Coco Butter Kisses.” But I kind of like the fact that there’s not one, because it’s a testament to how some people only know that about me. I had to realize that without a video—without it being majorly distributed, without it having any Grammy nominations or famous TV performances of it—it just stands alone as a song that meant a lot to people.

I’m kind of glad that I still get offers all the time from people like, “Hey, let’s make a retroactive video for ‘Cocoa Butter Kisses.’” And I’m like, “Nah. I kind of like the way it is.” But at that time we were also very innovative with what we were shooting and how we were shooting the videos. So I feel like we could have made some dope stuff. I always wanted there to be a music video for “That’s Love.” It’s a short song but it was just cool, poetic, vulnerable raps.

I shot a video for “Paranoia” that never came out and it was really intense and really dark. It wasn’t separate from the sound of  Acid Rap , but definitely divergent from the other visuals that came out. I just never put that shit out. I think the ones that we made were so important to me. “Everybody’s Something” is my favorite video, just because I like editing and repurposing old films for new stuff. And the “Smoke Again” video was fire, too, because I remember we shot that with Ab-Soul and Mike Waxx and all the Illroots dudes. Shout out to Darnell and Mike Carson and Mike Waxx and all of them. We came out to LA and shot that video with them real quick.

What did  Acid Rap  teach you about yourself as an artist? I think  Acid Rap  was a good example of me just trusting myself and being OK with being who I was. I don’t ever want to sound like I’m taking credit for shit, but druggie culture, like niggas rapping about doing LSD and other shit that wasn’t weed, was not happening in 2012. So in 2013, coming out with this  Acid Rap  project, niggas were calling me a weirdo and all types of shit. I had to deal with that and also realize that my projects described experiences that I had already been through. But they were not the sum of me or the whole exploration of who I am as a person. I stopped doing acid probably less than a month after the project came out.

I was like, “I’m done with this” after too many bad trips and just weird shit happening to me. But I had to deal with it for the next year and a half. Having everybody that met me trying to either offer me acid or ask me interview questions about acid and having to be basically the spokesperson for drugs. But I had to come to myself and realize and remember that I was not making those songs off acid. I may have found some beats I liked off of acid, but it was me making the songs. And I think that was probably the key thing that I learned from that experience. It was like, you could dress up something to be one thing and draw inspiration from one thing but it doesn’t necessarily mean that that’s the main ingredient to it.

After the project dropped, I know people were coming to your shows off acid. They were treating  Acid Rap  as if it was a promotion of acid. Motherfuckers were giving us bags of a hundred tabs, or literal liquid acid, and we was like, “Just chill. It is not that serious.” But I also understand it because  Acid Rap  took me a year to finish. And it was a lot of studio sessions where I was just listening to other people’s music off acid or traveling to other places. You’re supposed to do acid either by yourself or with a group of people you trust, in a small controlled setting, and just trip and chill in that space. And I was like, shit, I’d take two or three tabs and just go downtown. This is pre-Uber too. I would just go on the train by myself and just walk around downtown Chicago or travel around with that. I was tweaking at that time. But it was all those experiences—the friendships that I made, the friendships that I possibly ruined, all the relationships in my life—that were being influenced by the way I was at the time.

I also think there was a certain hunger just around wanting to reach a deeper success than I had on  10 Day .  10 Day  was obviously the biggest thing I had done. All my other projects were only famous in my high school. So once  10 Day  dropped, I got to go on a national tour with Donald Glover. I had played SXSW and done some local Midwest stuff, and I needed my next project to be something that was going to break the mold and not just be me rapping about school or being done with school or whatever.

Did you think that this would become the tape to change your life? Because  10 Day  had a lot of momentum as well… [My mom] used to just buy CDs and she would find artists that she truly supported. She’d go catch them on tour and shit like that. And she always used to say your second album makes or breaks you. She’d be like, “An artist will come out with their debut album and they’ll get pushed to the forefront of music and be called the ‘voice of the generation’ and champion for all this stuff. And then their second album comes out and it doesn’t hit all the same high notes.” So in my head, that’s why the first song starts off with, “Even better than I was last time.” You know what I’m saying?

{ "id": 132215525 } “The funny thing that a lot of people historically don’t remember, is when Acid Rap first came out, people were not universally loving that shit.”

And, “This your favorite fucking album, I ain’t even fucking done,” I had a lot of lyrics that were leaning into that because I really didn’t want it to be less than  10 Day . The funny thing that a lot of people historically don’t remember is when  Acid Rap  first came out, people were not universally loving that shit. Especially people that had found me through rapping about being suspended from school. They like, “I’m not trying to hear you rap about drugs for a whole album, and who the fuck is Childish Gambino?” Shit like that. The same thing happened with  Coloring Book . 

I think when I was making  Acid Rap , I was thinking a lot about my own emotions, and where I wanted to be. I think I was also trying to get signed at the time, too. I was really trying to get signed to a label. You’ve got to think about the climate.  10 Day  is really around the time that [Chief] Keef blew up on YouTube, pre-Kanye co-sign. At the time in the city, that’s what everybody would compare me to. “Damn, Keef doing numbers but Chance The Rapper’s dope, too.” And so 2013, it was like, if I could just get signed to a label, I’d be good. I was so thirsty and I was traveling to New York and LA a lot to go to niggas offices and hear about four-album option deals and just terrible [deals] that I’m glad I didn’t get stuck in. But that was where my head was at. It was like, I just want to make this as good as  10 Day , and thank God it was better.

Acid Rap  and  10 Day  were coming out at the peak of Chicago drill era sound. Then here you are making music that’s sonically alternate of that. How much do you think  Acid Rap  affected the Chicago sound? I think it’s the blueprint for that Midwest sound that you still hear to this day. You’d be hard-pressed to find somebody that’s a year or two younger than me, that wasn’t influenced by  Acid Rap,  even if they weren’t from the Midwest. Like Jack Harlow, [Lil] Uzi Vert, and people that are from opposite coast and from other places still tell me what the album meant to them at that time. But if you were in Chicago, then you had the opportunity to be on the album, and work closely with helping to promote it or to help me get shows or to open for me or whatever. It was this whole ecosystem that was bred really out of a community that already existed. A lot of us went to Young Chicago Authors, a lot of us went to YOUMedia and went to different after-school programs around the arts. So we all got to learn from each other. And that’s why Mick Jenkins, Saba, Lucki, Noname, Nico Segal, Vic Mensa… We were all 14 and 15 years old doing writing exercises together as kids. So I think  Acid Rap  really gave one a lane for people that were trying to do something alternatively.

But you also have to recognize that 2012 was the peak of drill coming out and being introduced to the world. But I wouldn’t say that it was what anybody in Chicago was accustomed to as a sound yet. That came later on, as more and more artists came out, doing the same sound and having more success and getting remixed by people like [G] Herbo who supported that movement. [Lil] Dirk supported that movement. And they also have different sounds from Keef even. I feel like in 2012, Kanye West is still the biggest artist in the world. Lupe [Fiascos]’s still charting. It was still an older generation of music that didn’t sound anything like  Acid Rap  or drill music.

So I feel like me and Keef came out around the same time, both doing our own thing. Why we got so much coverage and so much support was because it was different than what you thought would be the typical Chicago sound. Now, if you’re really being honest, I would say the more recognizable Chicago sound at this time would still be drill. And there’s still a lot of fanfare and media hype around anything related to drill, whether it’s music or otherwise. But, still—within the actual city, the ecosystem, who’s doing shows—are the people that are influenced by  Acid Rap , too.

{ "id": 132215524 } “I think it’s the blueprint for that Midwest sound that you still hear to this day.”

Acid Rap  lives in such a unique place in everyone’s lives because it wasn’t common with all the other music were that they were experiencing at the time. There’s definitely nothing that sounds like  Acid Rap , if you go back to 2013. You got  Yeezus , you got  Nothing Was the Same . You got Mac Miller’s  Watch Movies with the Sound Off . You got J. Cole’s  Born Sinner . And in terms of rap, there was not another album that had a song like “Chain Smoker” on it or another album that had a song like “Everybody’s Something” on it. It was its own thing. And like you said, because it was just something you had to be in the know about to even have access to it. It became, I don’t know, like I said, it’s like a cult classic.

What’s one thing you miss about the  Acid Rap  era? And what’s one thing that you’re glad was left in that time? I could tell you first, what I’m glad is left is acid. I have not done acid since 2015. And just the lack of control, man, you can’t tell if it’s because of the acid or just it’s a bad day. But I’m glad that I don’t do acid anymore. Glad that that’s left behind.

And I mean, there’s so much that I miss. I miss the relationships, just as time goes on. People grow up and we were all 19 or 20 years old—all of my friends from Chicago were around the same age. We didn’t have kids, we hadn’t moved to other cities. We hadn’t started having to deal with bills and all types of other shit. And all those things changed the relationships between everybody. So I wish that we still had that level of freedom to just up and decide to go to SXSW. And not because we have all these shows booked, but just because we’re trying to see if we could jump on a show and have fun.

I wasn’t able to play shows the way that I am now. I wasn’t able to take care of people. I was still very much so in a self-discovery time. I feel like that’s what  Acid Rap  is. It’s a whole bunch of questions, and as time goes on, you find some of those answers. So I don’t necessarily miss being confused, but I do miss… I think the best part about it was how tight me and Fatimah [Noname] were. How tight me and Austin Vesely, who directed all my videos, were. And all these people are still the loves of my life, but we live in different cities. Some of us have kids. It’s just different.

What do you think your life and career would look like if you didn’t grow beyond  Acid Rap ? I probably would’ve died, to be honest. That’s the thing: entertainment is entertainment. We like it because it’s something that’s recorded, that we could experience in that one time and then hopefully come back and listen to it and it sounds the same. But it takes away the humanity from the people who make it. The way that I was living at that time, I had everything in excess. So right after I dropped the project, I went on a few tours where I didn’t really make any money. But then I went on my first tour, my headlining on tour, where I made some money. And I went and bought a crib or rented a crib, this fat ass mansion in LA.

{ "id": 132215527 } “I think if I hadn’t had my spirit tugged on, literally, and a calling to become a better version of myself, then I would’ve died.”

This is my first time living outside of my parents’ house in another city and having money and doing a lot of drugs, you know what I’m saying? A lot of Xans, you know what I’m saying? Too many Xans. And just becoming a different person, a lesser, lesser person than I am now. I think if I hadn’t had my spirit tugged on, literally, and a calling to become a better version of myself, then I would’ve died. And then I would just be the representative of acid, and I’m so much more.

As fans, we often want artists to stay the same because they reflect moments that were important to us. I think the thing is, we always put it on the fans. Like, “The fans need to allow artists to grow.” But really, artists need to allow themselves to grow. It’s really on us. How much do we care about a like or a comment that says “This is fire,” or a meme that says “I got a triple-double on a collab song.” Fuck all that shit, you know what I’m saying? Those people do not go to sleep with you. They can’t take care of your kids. They won’t recognize you unless you’re wearing a 3 hat. Opinions are like assholes, everybody’s got one. It comes down to how much do you love your life and what do you have to live for and what do you want to see happen in your life and happen for you in your life?

chance the rapper acid rap interview

You’ll never be able to control how people feel about you. Never. You could give them your all. You could give them your worst and they’ll surprise you every time. So I think it’s really up to artists to just remember that they made music before they had fans, and they loved music before they had fans. So, whether that fan loves you or hates you or says they’re not a fan anymore, if they tell you that you need to start doing drugs again, who are these niggas? They don’t matter, you know what I mean? Everybody matters in the grand scheme of humanity and being a good person, but in terms of shaping who you are, and giving you life advice, that’s one tweet out of how many that they made.

So it’s safe to say that you will not be doing acid again? You know, maybe I’ll get over it. Because I also think sometimes it could become an irrational fear around PTSD or around just instances of uncomfortability that [I] dealt with, that can become a hindrance and you’re over. But also, yeah, I don’t have any need to do acid. I think I created an aesthetic and a story, a narrative around it though, that is  Acid Rap . These are raps inspired by acid, but there was no acid around. “Everybody’s Something,” there was no acid around. “Chain Smoker,” there was no acid around.

The songs that I did acid before I made are “Favorite Song,” which I don’t necessarily love. “Juice,” which I don’t necessarily love. I love them, but those aren’t the songs that I go back and listen to. I’ll go back and sit down and listen to “Everything’s Good,” the outro of the project, I think is just so well=written. I’m so proud of that 20-year-old kid that made that shit. I’m like, this is true vulnerability, true penmanship. It has the little outro where it goes into the juke version of the song and then it brings in samples from other songs on the album. That’s ill, that’s just an ill idea.

I used to be like, damn, I tricked all these [people] into doing acid. But, yeah, I think as long as I can remember the truth of what it meant for me, what it did for my family, what it did for the city of Chicago and how it was made, and who were the people and the players that made it possible, then I’m good.

Other suggestions included "Prom Night," "Summer Friends," "Same Drugs," "Juke Jam," and more. "Way way back when I saw you in 2013 you did a cold play cover.

Chance recently reflected on the making of Acid Rap during an interview with Complex . He detailed just had bad his dependency on drugs was at the time. “I probably would have died,” Chance The Rapper remarked to the publication. “Definitely, the way that I was living at that time. I had everything in excess. Right after I dropped the project, I went on a few tours where I really didn’t make any money. Then I went on my first tour, my headlining tour, where I made some money.”

“If I hadn’t had my spirit tugged on- literally- and a calling to become a better version of myself, then I would have died for sure,” Chance continued later in the interview. “Then I would just be the representative of acid and I’m so much more.”

Chance The Rapper

Chance the Rapper has just dropped a major update on his upcoming release, Star Line , and it’s the news fans have been waiting for.

In a recent chat with Complex , the Chicago native revealed that his next studio project is about 83 percent complete, bringing us one step closer to hearing what he’s been working on .

“For my last project, I’d just gotten married, I just had a baby, I was about to separate from my management. Like, I had so many things going on. Now, it’s not like there isn’t a lot going on, but I’m really able to enjoy the creative process and be 100 percent myself.”

Star Line draws inspiration from Marcus Garvey’s historic Black Star Line , a shipping company aimed at connecting the global Black diaspora in the early 1900s.

Chance elaborated on this during a 2022 interview with Sway.

“He started and ran this very important, integral shipping line. He had a fleet of ships, these giant ocean liners which are the size of cruise ships, that he owned and funded with common Black folks’ money.”

Garvey’s vision of global Black connectivity deeply resonates with Chance, who aims to channel that spirit into his music . “When I think about the Black Star Line and all the spaces that it’s been in, the black star [on the line’s flag] is [also] the representation of Ghana, in their flag, in the fabric of how their country was set up,” he said.

“They believe in global Blackness, Black connectivity and a free Africa.”

Although the album was initially slated for a Spring 2024 release, Chance hasn’t confirmed a new date yet.

To keep fans engaged, he dropped “Together,” produced by DJ Premier , in May, and “Buried Alive” in April, a track that touches on his recent divorce and legal battles with his ex-manager.

In Buried Alive , Chance gets real with lines like, “Where’s his money now? Where his wife at?/ Where his manager? Where his hype at?/ Then they threw the dirt on the casket,” showcasing his raw, introspective side.

“I’m really able to revel in the creative process and put everything into that and be 100 percent myself and present in the now,” he said.

A Dog’s Chance

Polo Perks AyooLii  Fear Dorian A Dogs Chance

By Vivian Medithi

June 27, 2024

Atlanta producer-rapper FearDorian first asked to join the NYC hip-hop collective Surf Gang six years ago. It didn’t work out—Dorian was then just 12 years old—but the young artist was undeterred, steadily racking up internet collaborations with everyone from digicore wunderkind d0llywood1 to skater-turned-lyricist Na-Kel Smith. Along the way, he co-produced tracks with Surf Gang triumvir Harrison and began sending beats to one of the collective’s OG members, Polo Perks .

Perks and Dorian make a sensible combination on paper, drawing equally from the 2020s SoundCloud underground and mid-2000s Warped Tour-adjacent detritus even as their music moves in different directions. Their union with Milwaukee lowend upstart AyooLii is less intuitive: The 23-year-old rapper’s songs tend to be simpler, better suited for moving asses on dancefloors than solitary listening. But like Polo Perks, AyooLii has never met a sample that scared him , and all three members of the trio work fast. Their new collaborative album is charged with this improvisatory spirit: a brief blast of unruly energy that bounces between 5G towers in New York, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and beyond.

On the freewheeling and frenetic A Dog’s Chance , familiar samples twist into endearingly bizarre shapes. Here, a warped fragment of chiptune band Anamanaguchi ; there, a snippet of Hawaiian singer Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. Our intrepid protagonists barrel recklessly through these landscapes, rarely hitting a dead end. Thanks to FearDorian’s steady hand behind the boards, A Dog’s Chance manages to zig on even the zaggiest beats. The lowend drums on “BackPack” are layered over a wisp of melancholic guitar; “Skatepark” scans as straightforward sample drill for three seconds until weaving snares snap that anticipation in half. Dorian’s production here cribs heavily from Milwaukee, setting the BPM via 1-and-3 handclaps, and moderately from Surf Gang’s hazy vision of New York drill, pulling just enough from his collaborators’ home turfs to ensure they feel at ease.

Yet the defining rhythms of A Dog’s Chance come from nu-jerk, the zany, burgeoning wing of the Gen Z underground that counts Xaviersobased , YhapoJJ , and FearDorian himself among its pioneers. Nu-jerk ostensibly retrofits the drum patterns of mid-2000s California jerkin’ music to modern synth loops—albeit with glitchier snares and blown-out 808s—and Dorian crushes these drums up against unusual palettes and patterns. The lowend/jerk hybrid “They Love Ayoolii” splits open to reveal a Jersey club style break, while Current Joys collab “Rockband Tees 08 Denims” treats Nick Rattigan’s sampled vocals and Polo Perks’ verses with equal respect, a nearly unintelligible mishmash that miraculously gels.

A Dog’s Chance stumbles where it retreads ideas. The maudlin “Carissa’s Weird” aims for catharsis, but its fusion of jerk drums and rock sample pales next to the stoic “Breeshwrld.” Oklou -sampling “BackPack” sounds watered down rather than wavy, especially when the atmospheric “Alicia Keys” arrives two tracks later. These songs aren’t bad, but they drag down the trio’s batting average.

FearDorian’s idiosyncratic flair is perhaps best understood through the highly recognizable samples heard on “PaperPlanesSoulja” and “Benice2me.” On the former, Dorian twists Diplo and Switch ’s flip of the Clash ’s “Straight to Hell” into endless rising action, building and building without release; on the latter, Dorian and Quinn chop and screw a fragment of Bladee into a stop-start shuffle. These “cheat code” samples feel tonally distinct from Jack Harlow singing Fergie or Kanye invoking the Backstreet Boys : less concerned with triggering nostalgia than with bringing their source material into the now.

The capricious production leavens AyooLii and Polo Perks’ raps, which stray just far enough from their solo work to avoid feeling static. Perks is the more grounded, his fine-grit bark loping forward with metered precision. “Yeah that nigga broke, he get no bread/How you wanna, uh, nigga go head,” he sighs on “Answers,” before craniometrically deducing a woman has good pussy. By comparison, AyooLii’s pinched yelps zip forward like a terrier with the zoomies. “This Glock’ll paint a picture, I’m an art director! Need a bitch with a booty like Ari Fletcher !” he crows on “Pinky.”

When playing against each other, as on lead single “Ricky Eats Acid,” Perks and AyooLii find a delirious synergy; on the brief occasions FearDorian steps in front of the mic, his slightly more melodic approach splits the difference between his teammates’ salt-of-the-earth raps and more aerodynamic Auto-Tune flows. And although closer “Left Right” leaves ample room for Dorian and Perks to get in their feelings, most of the tape is sunny and chipper, as if AyooLii burst into the studio and told them to stop dwelling on Midwest emo and touch grass at the skatepark instead. The net result is a breezy celebration of all the small wins along the path of regional semi-stardom. With friends like these, there’s no need to rush.

Last month, Chance released a DJ Premier-produced single, “Together,” alongside a self-directed visual. The soul-stirring track both celebrates the Chicago home-front, while also presenting a rallying cry to protect it. The music video centers on lyrics of reminiscence and pride against a backdrop of vintage personal home video and archival footage from community-led political movements through history. Housing Justice, displacement, and gentrification are alluded to throughout the record. Chance explicitly calls for a community benefits agreement from former President Barack Obama in the development of the new Presidential Library in the residential neighborhood of South Shore in Chicago, Il.
