Always vibrant and vocal, Chance The Rapper’s latest bit of news comes two fold. First, a lengthy feature on the Chicago emcee and band leader via GQ Magazine has landed online and there’s a pretty dapper spread of the young man in various bucks and suedes. The second news comes in the initial paragraph of the piece. The one that takes a chunk of a lede with…

…. a heavily hyped debut mixtape. His subsequent guest appearances—nasally breathless, startlingly precocious—gained the attention of artists like Frank Ocean, J. Cole, and André 3000, all of whom will appear on his yet to be named debut LP. And in a departure from the tired “rapper plus his DJ” aesthetic, Chance sits comfortably at the helm of the Social Experiment, a hip-hop collective dedicated to injecting a bit of theater back into the genre’s live performances. We’re talking stage blocking, choreography, video. Even puppets.

Read the bold and then start breathing slowly. The entire feature covers plenty from his rise to stardom, The Social Experiment and more and you can read it in full here.
