With the release of his newest mixtape 'Acid Rap', Chance has recently drawn comparisons to the likes of Kanye West and Andre 300, so he must be doing something right!
Chance the Rapper, or Chancelor Bennett to give him his full name, started to show a passion for music from an early age, forming the group 'Instrumentality' with a friend in his freshman year of high school.
By his senior year of high school in 2012, as Chance puts it, his teachers weren't supportive of his dreams to make it in music, ultimately leading to a 10 day suspension which was a blessing in disguise as he used the time to record his first mixtape under the 'Chance the Rapper' moniker, ingeniously titled '10 Day'.
'10 Day' brought Chance into many peoples consciousness, with the mixtape being downloaded over 20,000 times on Dat Piff, but its his newest mixtape 'Acid Rap' where he really gets a chance to flex his creative muscles.
With a healthy respect for the old school throughout the tape, with samples from seminal hip hop groups Slum Village and A Tribe Called Quest, 'Acid Rap' clearly derives sounds from various influences and blends a variety of styles, which perfectly compliment Chance's unique flow.
