This is what you’ve all been waiting for…the follow up project to Chance The Rapper’s amazing debut release, 10 Day, is finally here and available for the masses. Chicago has exploded onto the scene in the last year due to Chief Keef’s popularity but that didn’t come without criticism especially given the content and message of his music. Unlike Keef, Chance’s music doesn’t follow that same route. Besides being inspired by acid jazz last summer, Chance stated that he was on acid for most of the sessions during the recording process hence why this project is called what it is. Don’t sleep on Chance. This is definitely on track to be one of the best releases of 2013.

Now a day before the official release, we have a LEGAL stream for you. Take a listen and make sure you grab the tape on iTunes at midnight. Hit the jump for the full stream. (more…)
