Acid Rap may not just be the best mixtape released this year, it could quite possibly be the most complete music project to come out of hip-hop this year. With an in-house production team and a concept surrounding the madness associated with recreational drug use, leaving high school to pursue an entertainment carer, losing and finding love, and a whole lot of crazed soul searching, Chance The Rapper put the rap game in an irreversible choke hold, and the “new school” upstarts now have a paramount gold standard. With sounds ranging from “Pusha Man” (witty, jovial and reckless) to the focused, metaphorical templates set with “Lost” and “Chain Smoker”, Chance has truly carved a lane for himself that could expand into one of the more enjoyable careers of the next decade.
