Chance the Rapper just released his third completely free body of work, Coloring Book, and despite not having had an opportunity to listen through more than once yet we're willing to go out on a limb and say it's serious progression.
Acid Rap and Surf were fantastic projects, showcasing Chance at his very best and marking him out as an individual with an energy like nobody else in hip hop.

Coloring Book takes it a step further and sees him recruit the likes of Kanye West, Future, Young Thug, Jay Electronica, Justin Bieber, T-Pain, 2Chainz, Lil Wayne and more. We have no doubt that all of those names, despite how big some of them are, would have jumped at the chance to feature on this mixtape.
But, as we said, it's completely free - currently available via Apple Music and Dat Piff.
ps, support our Young Godly Warrior Chance and get the project. peace Twitter.

Lil Chano probably has his finances tight enough, but listening to something as beautifully constructed as Coloring Book with its gospel feel, honest lyrics, incredible features and timeless vibes, we needed some way to show our appreciation.
Thankfully he's given us the opportunity to give him some money by releasing merchandise to go with the album, and it's completely customisable. You can choose the colour of the t-shirt, hoodie or hat you'd like to purchase, and then decide what you'd like on the front and back. Chance 3, Coloring Book, 3, The Social Experiment and more are all options.
