Published Apr 09, 2014Chance the Rapper made a big splash in 2013 with his Acid Rap mixtape, and he's carrying the momentum over into 2014 with a string of one-off tracks and collaborations. The latest song to emerge from the MC is "The Writer."
The song actually comes from Chicago collective THEMpeople's mixtape Smoke Breaks IV, where it serves as a bonus track. It was apparently made back in 2012, when Chance was working on his 10 Day mixtape. Over a reflective, piano-driven beat, Chance raps about striving for success and reflects that he's "probably as good as Elton John."
