Video: Chance The Rapper/The Social Experiment Short Film – ‘SoXDay’ Dir. by Austin Vesely

posted by Oscar December 3, 2014

Happy SoXDay!

Our dude Austin Vesely connected once more with Chicago Great Chance The Rapper for SoXDay, a short film chronicling what it’s like to be on tour with Chano and his band the Social Experiment. Here we get to see all that goes on for the 23 hours in the day when they’re not on stage.

The backing act consists of Donnie Trumpet, Peter Cottontale, Stix, Nate Fox(‘s back) and Macie Stewart. It’s cool seeing Chance work with the crew as they prepare the lighting for the show as well as his commanding toast for his tour manager, but it’s the comedic parts, like the “TMZ moment” and the post-show conference, that make this entertaining.

The concert footage is particularly jarring though; the view from the stage and onto the crowd was an awesome reminder of just how much he’s grown in his still very short, ongoing career.

This only helps build the anticipation for Surf; coming soon. Shout-out to AV!

Chance The Rapper - SoX
The dawn of The SoX is fast approaching…

Long-time POD favorite Chance The Rapper has revealed that this year he will be delivering the highly-anticipated follow-up to Acid Rap. In an exclusive conversation with Billboard, the Chicago native revealed that his new album, now with his band The Social Experiment (Donnie Trumpet, Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, Stix), will be called ‘Surf’ and it will be delivered by the end of the year… for free!

Chano mentioned that this new project boasts production help from Frank Ocean and the legendary Rick Rubin, while acts like Migos and J. Cole will be featured as vocal collaborators. While that is plenty exciting news, we love the fact that Nico (Donnie Trumpet) will be the first to drop a Social Experiment project and that Chance will be a part of that.

More details are yet to come but in the meantime read the whole article over at Billboard to learn everything we know so far of what’s to come.
