So, here’s a little backstory on this mixtape.  Chance The Rapper was suspended from school for 10 days for smoking weed on school property (though he wasn’t on school property), and during those ten days, this whole mixtape was created and then released early this year.  That suspension was probably the best thing that ever happened to Chance.  Chance not only exploded on the Chicago scene this year, but also on a national scale.  I got the Chance to hit up a Chance concert in the first week of summer this year and got to chop it up with him after the show and he was a real cool dude, so that’s another plus with this good music on the mixtape,  Chance has a very distinct style and voice as well as an unorthodox flow, so it may be difficult for some of you to get into him, but once you can get past that (like many of you did with.. hmmm. Kendrick Lamar), you’ll start to dig Chance.
