Coloring Book- Chance the Rapper

Chance released his first streaming mixtape on apple a few weeks ago titled Coloring Book.   It is absolutely great. I am so happy with this album and its follow up from Acid Rap. Chance is really changing it up and pushing himself to be a better artist everytime he puts out new music. I haven’t heard a hip-hop album this great since Life of Pablo. Chance moved into my Top 10 rappers out right now playlist, thats how good this album is. My Favorite songs are ” All We Got.” ” Juke Jam”, and ” Angels” 

“All We Got” – I immediately loved this song as soon as  I heard it. In fact, I couldn’t listen to the rest of the album because i was so stuck on this song. I loved chances lyrics and flow on this track, I wanted to belt it out everytime I heard it. I also liked Kanye’s little auto-tuned part on the track. Kanye’s part fit perfectly with the song as it flowed nicely alongside the beat. I loved that Chance used a choir from his city on the track as well.

“Juke Jam”- I liked this song  because its so mellow and I loved the R&B beat on this track. I like how versatile Chance can be. He can make a nice slow jam but can also deliver a great hip-hop verse. I believe Chance could have used Frank Ocean or Justin Timberlake instead of Justin Bieber, he sounds fine though. I just haven’t heard Frank Ocean in so long it would have been nice to have him on a track where he can stand out a bit more.

“Angels”-I liked how this song was so infectious to me. I loved the upbeat tempo and how good the bass sounded on here as well. I think Chance does a great job of stepping outside of the box with the flow and vibe of the whole song.

I really absolutely loved this album, its something special in my book. I honestly like it a lot more than Drakes new album. It pushes boundaries and it is completely different than what other rappers are doing right now. Its not about shooting people and getting money blah blah, this album has substance and is good for hip-hop. Do yourself a favor and go grab this mixtape. Its already making music history as we speak.
