“It’s just me and la cucaracha…” It’s only right that on the first anniversary of the breakout hit, Acid Rap, Chance The Rapper shares a new song. The song is called “I Am Very Very Lonely” and it boasts his band, Social Experiment, playing in the background for what proves to be a move in the right direction for LA Chano.

Video: Chance The Rapper – “Everybody’s Something”

The latest Austin Vesely-directed video is Chance The Rapper’s “Everybody’s Something” and it’s straight up Dope. The visuals for the song blend the lyrics with relevant clips (particularly digging the “middle finger Uncle Samuel” and the “we invented Rock before the Stone” scenes), so you see Chano simply performing the track while Vesely employs a layered projection effect that brings to mind the look of the sort of trippy videos shot in the late 60’s and early 70’s (like Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid”).

Check it out above.
