Tip #100: Listen to Chance 3

Since our relationship was cemented by our mutual love of hip-hop, it’s very appropriate that our ONE HUNDREDTH TIP !!! should be a recommendation for you to listen to a hip-hop album. Chance the Rapper is a 23 year-old artist from Chicago, where many of our favorite musicians have hailed. We think his origins show in his music, and those roots run deeper than Kanye: his influences run far and wide. His recently released mix tape “Coloring Book” also known as “Chance 3” comes at the perfect time: when spring gives way to summer, that’s when the people need music. The beats are fresh and the lyrics are too. We love this couplet:

“I don’t make songs for free, I make ‘em for freedom / Don’t believe in kings, believe in the kingdom”

It’s a good time to be in Chance’s kingdom. We’re not sure exactly how you should procure this album as of today, but check out Chance’s website for more information. And thanks for following along through all of these tips - there’s lots more to come.
