Starting with the sunny, Sunday-morning harmonies that open “Good Ass Intro”, Chance the Rapper’s April mixtape, Acid Rap, is a striking accord of feel-good, neo-soul sounds and compulsively-rhymed, P.T.S.D.-afflicted raps. Chance was apparently raised in a loving, middle-class home, but not far from the “Chi Raq” war zone which is home to Chicago’s “drill” scene (e.g., Chief Keef, Lil Durk), and accordingly, the titular “acid” refers to Chance’s two preferred palliatives for coping with the 2011 murder of his friend Rodney Kyles, Jr., which he witnessed firsthand: acid tabs and acid jazz.
