Some new/old Chano from the dusty vaults of yesteryear. To place a time stamp on this I’d say it was recorded/written around summer-ish 2012. I could be wrong, though. I’m a blogger, not a clairvoyant, for chrissakes.

Either way it’s filled with those witty and potent punchlines that first grabbed our attention of Chance in the first place. This was produced by Apollo Brown, and was hidden on the internets yesterday. Hide and go seek, ya heard? Check it out down bottom.

Update: This record was the bonus track on THEMpeople’s Smoke Breaks IV from yesterday.

Chance The Rapper To Perform @ Mad Decent Block Party 2014

Mad Decent just got a little more decent. Chance The Rapper will be joining A$AP Ferg, Riff Raff, Action Bronson, Run The Jewels and OutKast on this year’s round of stops for Mad Decent Block Party.

Chano will be headlining the Boston, Philadelphia and Toronto stops of the tour, so be to plan accordingly if you want to catch him live. Sucks that there isn’t a Chicago date, but I’m all for a trip to Philly if anyone’s down. Chicago’s own Flossstradamus are also featured on a bulk on the stops, so that’s pretty dope.

Check out the full lineup and grab tickets right here.
