Listen to Chance the Rapper's New Song "No Better Blues"
Chance the Rapper has been blowing up recently. Without ever releasing any for purchase-projects, and only two mixtapes, Chance has garnered a huge worldwide following. Following the success from his breakout mixtape Acid Rap, Chance has been touring constantly and featured on songs with various artists, such as SZA, James Blake, Skrillex, and Justin Bieber. Additionally, he has created a band called the Social Experiment, which is made up of Chance and musicians Nate Fox and Peter Cottontale, among others. Most of the songs the Social Experiment has released so far feature stripped-down producings, and soulful rapping by Chance. Yesterday, Chance and the Social Experiment released a new song, entitled "No Better Blues". The song is a satire of pessimism and criticism, and features Chance singing/rapping over a slow piano and drum production. Chance lists everything he hates for the entirety of the song, but most of them are paradoxical, such as "I hate to love and I love to hate" and "I hate racists, I hate white people". There's no word yet when Chance will be dropping a new project, or what the project will be, but judging by his rising popularity and then new songs he's released, there will probably be a new project fairly soon.
