Chance the Rapper f/ Big Sean, Jeremih, & Smino – Living Single


Update: Both Chance & Big Sean have responded to the “Living Single” leak. It was unsanctioned and was allegedly for Big Sean’s forthcoming album. See below.

Produced by Cam O’bi

What a time to be alive. We’d previously heard reports of a Chance/Smino collab not making it to Coloring Book, and wondered just when, if ever, we’d get a chance to check out what would’ve been one of the most interesting collabs on the album. Tonight, our prayers got answered as apparently that track has found its way to the interwebs, also featuring none other than Jeremih and Big Sean. This is more than a stacked line-up, as all four do the damn thing here. But don’t take our word for it, go listen.

Check out the monumental Midwest link-up after the jump, and look out for Jeremih’s Late Nights Europe project, which is set to drop on us at any time now.
