[New Mixtape] Chance The Rapper - 'Acid Rap'

After listening to Chance The Rapper's Acid Rap yesterday, I was left feeling a sense of deja vu which took me back to my first time hearing Kendrick Lamar's Section 80. As someone who was a fan of Kendrick's previous works, I could tell the second it started that this project would change everything. If past experiences teach me anything, it's that Chance The Rapper is set for the same fate.

Acid Rap is better than most albums hitting stores today, thanks to Chance's ability to lace his melodic flows with strong lyrics and the cohesive yet unique sound courtesy of Peter Cottontale and Stefan Ponce.  Proof that Chicago hip hop is not confined to one sound, stream and download Acid Rap below, which features BJ The Chicago Kid, Twista, Action Bronson, Childish Gambino and more.

BJ The Chicago Kid - "Honey"

Any label was lucky to have the talented BJ The Chicago Kid on their roster, but Motown seems like a perfect fit for my favorite R&B singer who's bound to have an amazing 2013.

Working with veteran producer B!nk, BJ puts his own spin to Aaliyah's "Rock The Boat" on his new single "Honey." Pineapple Now-Laters is in stores now!
