New mixtape “Acid Rap” from Chicago’s Chance The Rapper featuring Twista, Childish Gambino, Ab-Soul, BJ The Chicago Kid, Noname Gypsy, Saba, Vic Mensa and Action Bronson.
Great mixtapes sound like studio albums and Acid Rain is no exception. Chance actively introspects in his raps while unlocking personal and universal truths relevant to all humans. This fool travels to the bottom of the rabbit hole and keeps digging. Chances playful demeanor and clever word play helps entertain the listener while he delivers some seriously profound messages such as the one below.
“Everybody’s somebody’s everything. Nobodies nothing.”
Fold - Cuts Both Ways (feat. Mr Gee)
The Sword of Damocles cuts deeply
taking your life away
showing the price you pay, rolling the dice today.
Knowing the time of play decreases with ease
roll out the barrel even petrol tanks need to breathe.
Exhale new years eve
with a collective disease
play the January blues that the bank balances grieve
Trying to hold down a job is like a pod does a pea
I can’t afford to be sick so just watch where you sneeze
Now the lock blocks the key
the clock’s mocking me
it points to an open road but its the potholes I see
Stop snitching is the word that they preach in the street
but then the innocent get hurt while the guilty go free
Am I still cotton picking with exotic stitching
or do I get lost in the prison of forgotten living
that’s tantalizing - gangster fantasizing
so my frantic eyes are blinded by desire when
my happiness lies in someone else’s words
put a mirror to my eyes and invite the curse
I was given this life to uplift the earth
not to fight and die for someone else’s turf
Cuts from the government, I’m bound to condemn them
Cuts from my brothers, we’ll I’ll never defend them
To get sliced both ways from above and below
left stuck in the maze with nowhere to go
For each new year I hope for new cheer
I look with new eyes and listen with new ears
I sit down to drive and say a few prayers
I rev up the engine and start in a new gear.
