Video: Chance The Rapper Pays Tribute To Muhammad Ali at the ESPYs

posted by Oscar July 14, 2016

Chance The Rapper was recruited to pay tribute to the late Muhammad Ali at the ESPYs last night, and the all-time POD fave sure had something special for the onlooking masses. Chano’s spiritual vibes were the perfect fit for such an act of respect to the Greatest Of All Time, and he absolutely stole the show with his emotional and spine-tingling performance.

Backed by his trusty crew including Jamila Woods, Donnie Trumpet and Peter Cottontale plus Teddy Jackson, Chance delivered a new song that drew inspiration from the words of Ali himself. The soulful tune was beautiful and brilliant, empowered by soundbites of Ali speaking and taken to a spiritual level thanks to the gospel choir. The lyrics were pretty and creative, right in line with Ali’s own poetic triumphs. This quite honestly feels like the perfect way to honor such an awe-inspiring legend, and who better to make it happen than Chicago’s prodigal son.

Say hello to your new summer banger. Joey Purp and Chance The Rapper teamed up to give us “Girls @” and up beat ode to all the pretty ladies. Yo.. I’m not going to lie mid song I got out of my chair to twerk around the room. One listen and I was sold this track was dope.

We can’t stop talking about Chance the Rapper’s Pitchfork performance.

posted by JuicyJackie July 22, 2015





pitchfork crowd

When Pitchfork tickets first went on sale I wasn’t really sold on getting them. Well honestly, I had no cash, I just paid my rent. I wasn’t really bothered about it either. As Pitchfork got closer and closer and more talk about it got around, I was actually pretty mad I didn’t cop tickets. I kept saying to myself “It’s cool there’s only a few people on the lineup I want to see anyway & I’ve already seen Vic and Chance multiple times.” As many times as I’ve seen both acts I knew I wanted to see them both again and that I had to go. Vic performed Saturday night and I didn’t get to see it. I did attend his Pitchfork after party at the Virgin Hotels. The security at Virgin was really strict, which is completely understandable but it was hard to even get into the show. It was still a pretty great after party at a very nice establishment. So since I already missed Saturday.. I ultimately assumed I wouldn’t be at Pitchfork Sunday for Chance’s performance.

Well sometimes, social media isn’t so bad, I saw a tweet that said “Anybody want to come to Pitchfork?” I jumped right on it. At 6:30 I got in my car and headed over. I got pretty lucky to score a VIP pass so last minute. Chance didn’t go on till 8:30 so I mingled and filled up on free beer. There was even CHANCE THE RAPPER BEER!! (It was delicious, by the way.) It seemed like everyone in Chicago was there to see Chance close out the green stage. I saw so many people decked out in Chance gear. I decided it was time to settle for a spot and get ready for the show. Continue Reading

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.
