More new Chance today as he and the Social Experiment (Donnie Trumpet, Peter CottonTale, and Nate Fox) cover the upcoming issue of The FADER.
The cover story accompanied it and it’s a pretty quality read that highlights the personalities of all 4 of them with the writer observing and following the crew around for a day in L.A. I came out of this appreciating Chance more for his focus on their collective when, as the article astutely points out, many artists put themselves on another level first before the rest of the crew.
The Social Experiment’s upcoming album, Surf, is still due soon and is what Chance calls in the story, “Donnie’s project.” Read it for more.

Here is the first offering of Surf — Chance and his Social Experiment collective’s new album supposed to drop before the end of the year. It’s called “Sunday Candy”, which has a couple new verses from Chance and features singer Jamila Woods. Donnie Trumpet is credited with the lead as he puts down a nice feel to the record with the help of Peter CottonTale & Nate Fox. Here’s what Donnie said to FADER:
This song specifically is a great representation of [The Social Experiment’s] collaborative efforts. It’s my curation, but then bringing it to the table with all these beautiful people and including them in their own way. Jamila sang on that hook, then I brought it to the collective. Peter added some great layers of texture and helped produce, Nate added a bunch of drums, tons of our friends from Chicago played instruments and added their ideas.
Stream below — a nice soulful feel to it and perfect for the fam with the holidays on deck.
Big Sean hinted at new music to drop today after officially signing with Roc Nation last night and he surprises with not one, but four new songs below..!
E-40 is the lone feature (and he kills it) as production comes from some heavy hitters like… DJ Mustard & Kanye West co-producing “I Don’t Fuck With You” (with DJ Dahi). You can tell who produced what parts of that song, ha. MikeWillMadeIt and Chicago’s Da Internz and Nate Fox also assist in the whole set below. His most lyrical one is “4th Quarter” that gets better as it goes. The other records are more on the feel good party/club vibe that may suit your style too.
Oh, and the “you” in “I Don’t Fuck With You”: probably Naya Rivera.
