HipHop x Sports
This mixtape from up & coming Chicago artist Chance The Rapper was released back in April of 2013, but we figured we’d post it because he still flies under the radar to some degree.
This guy’s been getting a ton of buzz in the last year, and he did not disappoint with this mixtape. Among other forms of attention and publicity, he just recently covered Complex Magazine’s October/November 2013’s issue. The mixtape itself has got a unique and mellow feel. He recruits Twista, Childish Gambino, Action Bronson, and many others for this project.
“Acid Rap” was nominated for Best Mixtape of the Year at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards. It was also ranked #26 on Rolling Stone’s list of Top 50 Albums of 2013… Pretty damn impressive for the guy’s second mixtape
Best songs: Interlude (That’s Love), Chain Smoker, Smoke Again, Lost, Cocoa Butter Kisses
