Your Thursday night, and by extent, summer is now made thanks to Chance The Rapper, Donnie Trumpet, and The Social Experiment. Chance just put out the long-awaited, highly anticipated, SURF — for free download on iTunes here.
On top of that, Chicago’s own collective brought out a mix of familiar living legends, established stars and a host of buzzing up and comers to make up the features on the 16-track opus. Said legends and stars, classify how you will, include Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, Janelle Monae, J. Cole, Big Sean, and B.o.B. Then, more Chicago talent is on display as Jeremih, BJ The Chicago Kid, King Louie, Joey Purps, Eryn Allen Kane, and Noname Gypsy get in on the act for features and C-Sick I saw on the production (with of course, Nico Segal (Trumpet), Peter CottonTale, and the SoX.) Raury, Quavo (of Migos), Jesse Boykins III, KYLE, and D.R.A.M. round out the rest of the jam-packed guest stars.
