Chance the Rapper

by

Chance the Rapper’s technicolor dreamcoat mixtape Acid Rap has taken 2013 by storm, pushing the artist from cult adoration in his native Chicago to out and out national fame: Despite its independent release, the album is polished enough to invoke the names of Kanye, Kendrick, and Andre 3000. Expect a rap show that features as much squawking, grinning, and tooth-and-nail rhyming as it does slowed-down introspective cultural critiques.
