Chance The Rapper Just Released Four New Songs: Listen
Well, it's not quite a full album but Chance The Rapper is staying true to his word with the release of new music.
The Chicago hip-hop star dropped four new songs, “Work Out,” “65th & Ingleside” “Wala Cam” featuring Supa Bwe, and “I Might Need Security,” just in time for his headline performance this Saturday at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Special Olympics.
This four-pack is Chance's first batch of solo releases since his 2016 set Coloring Book, which became the first album to hit the top 10 of the Billboard 200 on streams alone.
Earlier this week, fans got all worked up by a report published in The Chicago Tribune in which Chano hinted at the imminent release of his sophomore set.
“I got that feeling when people do something that has a new feel to it,” he was quoted as saying. “I’m excited for everybody to get that. It’s going to come out just in time for the Special Olympics.” He cooled things down with a followup tweet: "Sorry no album this week, def been in the stu tho." He wasn’t lying.
There's a whole lot more to Chance's action-packed week. The artist and activist also acquired The Chicagoist, and let us all know about it in the lyrics to his song "I Might Need Security." "I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist bitches outta business," he raps. The popular Windy City blog has been shuttered since late 2017.
