posted by Oscar January 8, 2018

Shortly after releasing his latest album, Revival, Eminem has shared a remix of its track “Chloraseptic.” This new version features 2 Chainz, who was originally working with Em on an earlier version of this track.

Addressing the critical response Revival has faced, the Detroit rapper adds a new verse in which he hits back at critics with lines like:

Y’all saw the tracklist and had a fit ‘fore you heard it
So you formed your verdict
While you sat with your arms crossed

Did your little reaction videos and talked over songs(“—chill!”)

Video: Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, and 2 Chainz Perform “No Problem” on ‘Ellen’

posted by Oscar September 15, 2016

Chance The Rapper hit the Ellen DeGeneres today to put on a special performance of “No Problem” accompanied by Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. This rendition was lit as fuck, in all honesty, which saw Chano and crew crash a record label meeting and then proceed to trash it and make a celebration of it. Though 2 Chainz has arguably the better verse on the record, Weezy delivered his especially dope-ly on Ellen and even threw in new lyrics at the end of his verse, rapping: “And if that label try to stop me/I’m gon’ let ’em rob me/Yeah, right, like Ryan Lochte.” Flama performance. Catch that above.

After the performance, Chance sat down for a mini interview with Ellen. During their chat they talked about their encounter at the White House, where Ellen invited him to perform on her show. Chance then spoke about meeting President Obama as a teen and telling him he was a rapper. Check that out below. Continue Reading

Album Review: Our Top 5 Songs on ‘Coloring Book,’ by Chance The Rapper

posted by Oscar May 18, 2016

Chance The Rapper Chance 3

The long anticipation for a new project from Chance The Rapper finally ended when the Chicago man unleashed Coloring Book to the masses last week on May 12 of this year. Chano has been making a name for himself outside of his hometown for quite some time now, conquering the Hip Hop game year after year since Acid Rap dropped thanks to his work on collaborative projects like Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment’s Surf and a key role in the making of Kanye West’s The Life Of Pabloplus headlining music festivals like Lollapalooza (back-to-back!) and Pitchfork.

First off, let me say a little bit about Coloring Book as a whole. This should be considered a mixtape by name only, because it is an outright album by all other definitions. The songwriting, the production, the finesse, the swagger, the gravitas. Coloring Book has all of the elements of a full-fledged major record label release, somehow packaged as a mixtape on the biggest online music retailer because only Chance The Rapper can pull off something like that. This project is a defining moment in the career of young Chance. He has ascended to the pinnacle of the Hip Hop game with the album also nicknamed #Chance3, proving with each track his artistic depth, his penchant for masterful lyricism, and an effortless ability to craft timeless rhymes. This is the culmination of an unrelenting vision first conjured up by a young man from the Southside of Chicago, now standing among the elite of the genre.

I won’t do this album justice by simply naming 5 songs that are worth hearing. This album is more than that; the whole mixtape plays more like one big highlight reel. Coloring Book not only deserves your undivided attention, but it demands it with each passing track. Immerse yourself in its genre-bending glory to truly experience what this artistic work aims to accomplish. However, for the sake of this review, we’re simply pointing out the joints that stood out the most on an individual basis. These are the tracks that got revisited time and again for one listening session to the next; these are the songs that have earned themselves the right to hit our eardrums just little bit louder than the rest.

So hit the jump and see what are our Top 5 favorite songs on Chance The Rapper’s Coloring Book. Continue Reading
