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!

French Montana and Fetty Wap are bringing their respective East Coast sensibilities to their Coke Zoo — a collaborative mixtape due out October 27th. French Montana is coming off his Casino Life 2 mixtape, as well as hit single ”Off the Rip”, while Fetty Wap is still basking in the success of hit singles ”Trap Queen”, ”679”, ”My Way”, and ”Again”. In addition to his chart-topping singles, Fetty recently released his self-titled debut album, which topped the Billboard Hot 200 for first week album sales. Nevertheless, this seemingly unlikely pairing of French and Fetty are uniting the East Coast with Coke Zoo, a thirteen track mixtape — with five tracks featuring both rappers — that has some star-studded features along the way. That’s the tracklist above, but you may also find ”First Time”, the tape’s first offering (featuring Puff Daddy talking smack), after the jump.

Last year, veteran emcee Royce da 5’9” — holding down Detroit since ’99 — teamed up with venerable hip-hop producer DJ Premier to form PRhyme, and they’ve been on a tear since. That same year, they dropped their self-titled debut album, which housed single ”Courtesy” as well tracks ”U Looz”, ”PRhyme”, and ”You Should Know”. Looking to make the most out of the fourth quarter, the duo returns with a deluxe edition of their self-titled debut. And after highlighting the seven minute extended version of ”Mode” earlier in the week, Royce and Premo are sharing the full-length version of their ”Courtesy” video as well. In the video, the PRhyme brothers find themselves in dire circumstances: they’re stranded on the side of the road with a broken down car — nowhere to go. Naturally, their minds begin to wander: they imagining themselves living ”the good life” (driving an operational car, chilling on a boat, surrounded by beautiful women). However, one thing is for certain, and that’s Royce and Premo cannot forget about where they come from: nothing. Check out PRhyme’s visuals for ”Courtesy” — off of their self-titled debut album from last year — after the jump. Additionally, be on the lookout for the extended version of the album, due out sooner than later.
