Yes, you read that right. Chance The Rapper collaborated with none other than 24 year-old UK prodigy, James Blake on this remix for “Life Round Here”. The original song came out on James Blake’s Overgrown earlier this year, reigning high up on my list of favorite albums of 2013 to date. I was lucky enough to catch James Blake this spring in Denver, and was absolutely stunned by his beautiful performance.
Chance The Rapper is my favorite artist right now. If I were to use one word to describe Acid Rap, it would be “perfect”. Chance The Rapper came in and shook up the industry quicker than any artist I can think of following the release of Acid Rap, his mixtape regarded by many to be the album of the year. Chancellor Bennett is a young, acid infatuated MC coming out of Chicago who brings a choppy, singing and rapping style that is unlike any artist out there. This song is amazing as both Chance’s singing and rapping compliment this song in such a way I don’t think i’ll be able to listen to the original again and be satisfied.
