Chance the Rapper was the musical guest on last night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” with actor Chris Hemsworth as the host. Chance the Rapper performed two songs, including a new track entitled “Somewhere in Paradise” featuring fellow Chicagoan Jeremih. You can watch the full performance after the jump.
Chance the Rapper is keeping active, to say the least. Fresh off a critically-acclaimed mixtape and tour, the Chicago spitter is sharing a brand new song. Of course, being the unpredictable character that he is, Chance’s new song has a bit of a backstory. Last week, Chance praised one Stephen Colbert — yes, the talk show host — for his exceptional musical chops (calling him ”amazing”, in the process), and sharing little else about a ”secret song” between the two. And after his performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night (you may watch the performance here), Chance is wasting no time in sharing the new track. In addition to featuring Saba on the mic, ”Angels” is written and performed by Chance, Lido, Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, and Donnie Trumpet (for The Social Experiment) — sorry, no Stephen Colbert on an MPC here, folks. Check out the new Chance the Rapper track, ”Angels”, after the jump. Also, the track is available for free through iTunes — get it here!
Lil B and Chance the Rapper have joined forces on a new mixtape entitled Free because it’s free — duh. The Bay Area native and Chicago MC combine the best of both worlds on the six freestyles. You can check it out in full after the jump.
Chance the Rapper and his group The Social Experiment recently stopped by “Windy City Live” to play “Sunday Candy” from their new record, as well as “Paranoia” from Chance’s Acid Rap. Additionally Chance spoke on a potential collaboration with Kanye West, who recently shouted him out at a show. “Me and Kanye and a lot of Chicago artists are working on a collaborative effort that will be released tentatively,” Chance said.
