We’ve been amped for new music from Chance since the talk of Surf prior to last summer’s release. That excitement shifted when album talks rolled around and geared up even more when Kanye released TLOP. Chance’s verse on “Ultralight Beam” stamped his name into hip-hop as he gained a lot of new fans serving as a perfect alley-oop to Coloring Book.
So, what better way to start the third free effort than with an assist from Kanye? #Chance3 starts off where we all knew it would with more gospel-inspired vibes as “All We Got” features blaring trumpets, handclaps, Mr. West and Chicago’s Children Choir. After that, there’s so much to say, so many things to praise about this mixtape.
I won’t review it because that would disrespect the art but just know that there’s something for everyone here. Coloring Book features familiar collaborators like Lil Wayne, Noname, D.R.A.M., and BJ The Chicago Kid. New comers to the Chance wave feature Lil Yachty, Knox Fortune, Future and more.
So, without anymore delay, check out one of the best projects to grace May (because the last month alone has been crazy for music) and 2016 thus far. Ladies and gentlemen, #Chance3 aka Coloring Book.
