Earlier this year, Chano hit Al Lindstrom’s Toca Tuesdays to premiere a new record titled “Thotty“. There weren’t many details surrounding the song at the time, but we suspected that the track featured or was produced by J. Cole due to Cole’s ad-libs heard in the radio-rip.
Fast forward to this past Thursday and Chance joined Cole onstage during UIC’s Spark In The Park 2014 to perform their collaboration in full. No word on if we’ll get to hear it in mp3 form soon, but we sure hope so.
Until then, check out the footage of Chance and Cole performing “Thotty” above. Thanks, Nav.
And just when you thought Chance The Rapper was going to settle down and take some time off from touring to work on the follow up to Acid Rap, the Rapper has announced yet another tour. Moments ago, Chano released the dates for the Verge Campus Fall Tour, kicking off September 26th in Pomona, California and ending a month later in West Virginia.
A variation of artists will be joining Chance on the road including Travis $cott, Jason DeRulo and Young & Sick. So hit the jump to see when and where you can catch Chance, and who will be joining him in each city. No Chicago/Illinois dates unfortunately. Frowny face.
Check out the full run of shows below.

On August 21st, Colt 45 joined forces with Fake Shore Drive and 1833 Presents for a once in a lifetime Juicy J party/concert/extravaganza. We held court at Reggies Rock Club in Chicago for an action packed night featuring a secret live performance from the Juice Man, which included a revolving door of Chicago’s top stars.
Not only were fans, fam and lucky ticket winners treated to a freebie Juicy set, but also surprise appearances from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Jeremih and Katie Got Bandz. King Louie was also a surprise act on the bill, who tore the house down with his endless string of hits before Juicy graced the stage. Pulling it all together was the maestro for the night, DJ Victoriouz, who had the crowd going crazy with his spectacular DJ set.
It was a truly a night to remember. So if you attended and want to see a recap, or if you snoozed and want to see what you missed, we have a dope video above courtesy of Jack Edinger and Colt 45. Don’t miss the next one. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Produced by Brian ‘All Day’ Miller.
G Herbo. Com Sense. Chano. Need I say more?
After a few previews, Herb unleashes the official remix for “Fight Or Flight” from his Welcome To Fazoland project. A video for this record has already been filmed and is on the way, so stay tuned for that.
I can’t even begin to say how proud I am of the Jackie Robinson West Little League team, who are now the current reigning US Little League World Series champs. Today the city of Chicago threw them one heck of a celebration at their home field on the Southside, which turned into a parade that marched down Halsted and ended at the city-wide rally at Millennium Park. The city truly showed up and showed out today, and the Chi’s current reigning hip-hop champ, Chance The Rapper, was also on hand to salute the team and their fans during the rally. Talk about a homecoming.
Peep the powerful moment above. Hats off to all involved.
So this is only a brief snippet of Lil Herb’s new single featuring two Chicago greats, Common and Chance The Rapper. But you get an idea of what to expect from the remix of “Fight or Flight.” Now we can hear Common’s verse, and see they didn’t tweak the song too much. Hopefully that joint will be dropping sooner than later. This is sure to shake a few things up as it’s a collabo of epic proportions.

Yesterday afternoon, Com Sense was back in Chicago to link up with two leaders of the new school, Lil Herb and Chance The Rapper, to shoot the video for Herb’s “Fight or Flight (Remix),” which was produced by Brian “All Day” Miller.
“Fight or Flight” was clearly a standout record from Herbo’s Welcome To Fazoland mixtape, and they’re really pouring the gasoline on it by adding Chance and Common to the official remix. The first part of the video shoot took place yesterday in various locales around the city, and we’re told Chance is set to film his scenes over the weekend.
Check out some flicks from day one below.
As you should know by now, Chatham’s own Chance The Rapper closed this year’s Lollapalooza with a crazy set at the Perry’s stage. Word has it that close to 60,000 people showed up for Chance’s set, which was also streamed live on redbull.tv for those who couldn’t make it out. Pretty crazy stuff.
Couldn’t make it out to Grant Park and missed the stream or just want to relive the experience? Well, now you can watch Chance’s full hour and fifteen minute set above. Thank us later.
Also, Austin Vesely was nice enough to liberate the dope Juke Juke Revolution graphic he created for Chance’s set. Check that out below the cut.
Last night, Chicago’s hometown hero, Chancellor Bennett, triumphantly returned to Grant Park for his second year in a row at Lollapalooza, and last night he closed out the three day fest by headlining the coveted closing slot at Perry’s stage. Chance ran through his growing catalog alongside a full band, singing ensemble, dancers (including Bop King DLow) and a light show to rival another one of Chicago’s greats, Kanye West.
And despite the mud and rain, Chance brought his supporters out in droves, who sang along throughout his set and partied like the weekend was coming to an end (spoiler alert: it was.) But one of the most shocking and surprising moments of Chance’s set was when the rapper brought out the legendary Robert Kelly, who helped him finish out the melody on “Acid Rain” and then went into his own mini-set including some bars from “Bump N Grind,” “The World’s Greatest” and “Ignition (Remix.)” So yeah, it was pretty wild. People were walking past Chance’s stage in disbelief, not knowing if the DJ was just running through some Kells hits, or if the Pied Piper was actually on stage.
All in all, it was a great outing, further cementing his place as one of the most major players in the music biz today. If you missed his set live and missed the livestream, we have some footage for you this morning. Sure, it’s not super high quality, but you get the idea. Well done Chano.
