Chance the Rapper may have taken back his claim that he’d release an album this week, but consider that a misdirection. Because he surprised everyone yesterday by dropping four new songs: “I Might Need Security,” “Work Out,” “Wala Cam” and “65th & Ingleside.”
Good news for those hoping for more chipmunk soul and gospel rap, too. The hymnal “65th & Ingleside” and contemplative “Work Out” drip with both swag and spirit—you simply can’t take the church out of Chano. And check out those gorgeous, gospel-approved Hammond organ sounds on “Wala Cam,” which also features fellow Chicagoan Super Bwe on the verses.
In another revelation, the rapper also revealed his purchase of Chicagoist, a local lifestyle website, on “I Might Need Security.” He raps: “I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist b*tches outta business.” You go, Chano ?
