In the year and a bisected aback he appear his blemish mixtape, Acid Rap, Chance the Rapper has charted a arresting course. Forgoing signing with a above label, the Chicago rapper has remained independent, all the while steadily aggressive himself to the high echelons of the hip-hop cosmos through accurate touring and a abiding dosage of best bedfellow spots on songs from high-profile artists — Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Skrillex.
Still, his own agreeable achievement — which now includes a slow-burning abusive song “No Bigger Blues” — has been about quiet aback Acid Rap. Soon that’s all about to change: in an absolute account with Billboard, Chance reveals that he and his band, the Social Experiment, accept been active abroad in an L.A. studio, accepting advice and abutment from the brand of Frank Ocean and Rick Rubin and recording with anybody from Migos to J. Cole for a alternation of projects they plan to absolution over the advancing months.
The aboriginal such project, advantaged Surf, highlights his trumpet amateur Nico Segal (better accepted as Donnie Trumpet), and will be appear for chargeless online by year’s end. According to Chance, it’s his best arresting assuming aback Acid Rap.
Always one to allow his wildest agreeable fantasies — see a awning of the Arthur affair song, “Wonderful Everyday” — Chance additionally appear how he’s boot up a new alive appearance for 2015 that borders on agreeable theater, and is heavily aggressive by The Lion King musical. “My new shows are about like watching a movie. It’s like activity to a comedy or something,” he explains in a no-holds-barred account that touches on his abiding affirmation to abide independent, his agreeable future, and how he’s over assuming Acid Rap.
In “No Bigger Blues” you say you hate, well, about aggregate from “handshakes, pancakes” to “optimistic smirks on the face of children.”
That allotment was in a beck of songs that I was autograph for these projects that I’m alive on. I’m alive on several projects amid the band: we’re all accomplishing our own abandoned projects with assembly and vocals from everybody. One of the nights we were aloof bringing up songs and activity through it, and at the time aback I wrote it, I had aloof appear “Arthur” and there was a lot of backlash. I anticipate aback it aboriginal came out it wasn’t absolutely realized. Aback I say “it” I beggarly the reviews on it. I anticipate bodies weren’t able to absolutely accept area I was advancing from or absolutely clear what they were aggravating to say about the song. So it was a lot of quick breeze judgments. And not that they were abrogating or off base, but aggregate I was account at the time was bodies adage they hated something. Whether it was that they were antisocial the boredom or boredom of the music they were audition and aggravating to put my music in contrast, I dunno. I was aloof captivated up in this abstraction that anybody could animosity a song that was positive. And positivity is article that’s about a antic at this point. So I anticipate assertive bodies couldn’t absolutely accept it.
So from that you absitively to address a song about aggregate you allegedly hate?
I was talking with the guys aggravating to accomplish a song about things that I absolutely hate, and again it became added of a abusive affair area it was to a point area I was like, “I’m activity to address about things I couldn’t possibly hate.” At a assertive point I accomplished the best way to address it would be to advance it from a standpoint area it’s not necessarily accessible satire.
Yet some bodies still assume to anticipate you were absolutely actuality austere and are all depressed.
I capital there to be a assertive akin of abashing about it, because they are things that bodies ability acquisition themselves adage on a approved base that they hate. Like the war or the government. It was aloof dabbling fun at adage that you abhorrence anything. There’s so abundant positivity in the apple and your circadian activity that to go as far as to say that you abhorrence article or you ambition it didn’t abide and all the bad things in the apple appear to you and alone you, it’s a joke. It’s not absolute to accept that abundant abhorrence in your heart.
Seeing as this came out on a accidental night, is it safe to say you accept a lot of songs backlogged and are aloof cat-and-mouse for the time to absolution them?
Yeah. Able-bodied that’s the affair — everybody’s got their own things going. [Producer/bandmate] Peter [Cottontale]’s been alive on a lot of scoring for films, [producer/bandmate] Nate [Fox] has been accomplishing a lot of assignment with Hollywood Annal and accomplishing assembly for a lot of altered artists, [bandmate] Donnie [Trumpet], we’re alive the hardest on his activity because it’s the aing to release.
And you’ll be on that?
Yeah. Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment is the aboriginal accumulation activity to bead and the aboriginal affair that I’ll be heavily complex in aback Acid Rap. And I accept my own actuality that I’ve been alive on and I’ve been bearing for added artists and autograph for added artists and autograph with added artists. So all that bits is an influence. There’s so abounding altered genres actuality covered and actuality created every time we alpha on something. I’m aloof so abundant added focused on creating an atmosphere with anniversary song. I’m alive on anniversary song as a activity in itself.
You mentioned you’ve been alive with added artists. Care to allow further?
We’re alive absolutely carefully with Francis Starlite from Francis and the Lights. He’s been a absolutely been a big advice on Surf. Damn, I’m adage these things like bodies apperceive it. Surf is the aboriginal project, which is advancing out afore the end of 2014. It’s the aboriginal Social Experiment project. It’s a big footfall for all of us all putting our active calm and absolution Nico [Segal, a.k.a Donnie Trumpet] authority the reigns and backpack it. There’s a lot of abundant instrumentation. A lot of ascribe from air-conditioned writers. I’m already adage too much.
Who abroad accept you been alive with? We see your Instagram area you’re affair bags of the better names in music.
Well, we formed with Migos. We formed with J. Cole. We did some assignment with Emily King aloof aftermost week. Somebody who helped us out a lot with aloof accepting into the activity was Rick Rubin. And Frank Ocean. There’s been a lot of aloof bodies in the flat watching us assignment about like a abode band. Bodies appear in aloof to watch us jam out.
That’s agrarian you formed with Frank, because you shouted him out on Acid Rap’s “Chain Smoker.”
That’s the thing. There are assertive bodies that I never would accept dreamed that I’d end up in the aforementioned allowance as at this point in my life.
Like Kanye West, whom you met at Fabricated in America.
It was altered with ‘Ye because I haven’t absolutely sat bottomward in a flat ambience with him. I met him on some absolutely quick shit.
Have you gotten in the flat with Pharrell? I saw via your Instagram you met him recently.
Uh huh. Uh, I uh, that’s the affair [laughs]. I don’t appetite to accomplish this about necessarily who I’ve formed with.
I feel you. Let’s get aback again to your accessible projects. It seems you’re in no blitz to absolution the aing official Chance the Rapper project.
Well, that’s the accomplished thing. For one, obviously, I’m in a band. The bandage has been abetment me on a lot of the shows, so aback you go to a Chance the Rapper appearance it’s billed as a Chance the Rapper show, and alike admitting you bought a admission for a Chance the Rapper show, you end up activity to a Social Experiment concert, you know? And you get the abounding acquaintance of the musicality of four acclimatized players. It’s article different. It’s article new. It’s a bit of theater. It’s a acme of activity to all these blockhead concerts and seeing air-conditioned Broadway plays. A lot of access has appear from The Lion King musical. You could apparently acquaint if you accept to “Arthur.” We’ve been aggravating to booty in all these cool, altered alfresco cultural adventures and accomplish that into a chargeless listenable project. That’s the new thing.
So you appearance yourself about as a baton of a band?
Well, it’s not like I owe them because they are the curators of Acid Rap and #10Day and accept been my boys aback Day One, but because I charge them to accomplish the abundant music I appetite to make. I’m not so focused on authoritative a radio hit. I’m added focused on authoritative abundant pieces. I anticipate of “No Bigger Blues” as a allotment and “Arthur” as a piece. In my mind, I never absolutely accept to bead a project. I never absolutely feel absorbed to.
It’s about as if you feel it’s appropriately able to put out 10 songs over 10 months as against to one 10-track album.
Yeah. That’s the air-conditioned thing: I can do whatever I want. And I’ve got to absolutely angle that absolute adequacy of an absolute artist. I can do whatever videos I want, I can comedy whatever shows I want, I can absolution aback I want, allocution how I want, advisedly about any subject. I accept a assertive albatross and I feel like befitting to the mixtape to mixtape to anthology aphorism would aloof defeat the accomplished purpose of not signing [with a above label]. It’s additionally absolutely about actuality a craving artist.
You feel like a craving artist? You’re affairs out above venues.
I’m not a chain-buying-ass n–ga. I’m still a actual frugal person. But aggregate that does get spent is a reinvestment into my own music. Which is why I own a bus and book all my own commodity and run my own website and do my own releases and accomplice with absolutely air-conditioned accessible companies like SoundCloud. ‘Cause I anticipate a lot of bodies accept the aforementioned abstraction of music and area it’s activity and the administration it’s affective and a lot of bodies accept that music is activity to beat the industry. It existed afore the industry and it’ll abide afterwards.
So afterwards this academy bout you’re currently on, what are the touring affairs for aing year?
We accept an abstraction for what we appetite to do aing year afterward [the release] of Surf and [another activity entitled] SOX and aggregate abroad that is to come. We’ve been really, absolutely focused on The Lion King agreeable and date architecture and use of backdrop in the amphitheater ambience and aggravating to accomplish a actual air-conditioned musical-kinda thing. Like agreeable theater. So we’re alive on that. It’s still in the development process. I’m absolutely excited; the band’s absolutely excited. But the way the appearance goes appropriate now we’ve fabricated it a little added refreshing. We’ve been arena newer annal like “Paradise” and “Gold” and “No Bigger Blues” and “Windows.” Aloof bits that bodies haven’t absolutely heard and giving them a new experience.
You’re acutely annoyed of assuming Acid Rap.
I’m absolutely annoyed of arena Acid Rap. I’m absolutely annoyed of arena “Juice.” I’m in a abode area I appetite to accord bodies that… I appetite to accept a behemothic allowance abounding of kids agreeable but I appetite a assertive adjustment to it. I adulation throwing the raw activity about and actuality aberrant and desultory on date and freaking bodies out and application all my energy. But aback there are air-conditioned and calm three-song medleys that comedy out like a play, that’s the bits I’m into. I’m assuredly acquirements how to assignment like a choir director.
