“Living Single” is one of my favorite songs from Big Sean. The beat which was produced by Camobi is super chill and I like Big Sean’s flow on the song. I always felt that Big Sean had the potential to be a truly great rapper if only he stepped up on his lyrics. He has the same delivery as fellow slow rapper Mase but the lyrics can be a struggle to listen to.
Mr. Happy is a short film directed by Collin Tilley and stars Chance the Rapper under his real name Chancelor Bennett. The film is about a depressed and suicidal young man who stumbles upon a website called Mr. Happy that specializes in killing people who are unable to kill themselves. Chancelor’s character schedules an execution for himself but then meets a beautiful artist and a little bit of happiness enters his life. But his upcoming death is still planned and he must figure out what to do. Check it out above.
So I finally got around to listening to Chance the Rapper and I am impressed. His music is scatterbrained and completely abstract but also interesting. One of the best tracks from his album “Acid Rap” is ‘Paranoia’ which is a downtempo track that shows a different side to the Chicago rapper.
