Chance the Rapper – No Better Blues
It’s been a pretty awesome week for hip hop, between Run The Jewels getting together with Rage Against The Machine’s Zack De La Rocha and Monster Rally’s fantastic track with Jay Stone we were already blown away, but it’s Chance the Rapper’s melancholic-to-the-point-of-nihilism new track that really got our hearts racing. There’s something so effortless about his rhythm and rhyme that makes it insatiably listenable, and with each replay there’s something new to pick up on, something new to catch your ear. So stick it on, at very least for the fantastic pronunciation of asparagus.
It was another stupidly strong week for new music, there’s something totally different from Andy Stott, stunning new tracks from Shura and Cash & David, Run the Jewels and Monster Rally with ace new stuff, whilst Viet Cong bringing guitars back into the mix.
