Here’s high praise for you: Chance the Rapper’s hometown newspaper, the Chicago Sun-Times, proclaimed his new EP, Acid Rap, the “biggest hip-hop release to come out of the city since Kanye West’s College Dropout.” Fortunately for the 21-year-old, and for us, it’s damn good — so soulful, so playful, yet also thoughtful and introspective well beyond Chance’s age — and can be listened to now.
Here’s the tracklist, with guest appearances from Action Bronson, Childish Gambino, Ab-Soul, and more.
