Chance the Rapper: Everybody's Something

Chance the Rapper's breakout mixtape, Acid Rap, is my favorite thing I've laid ears on in a long, long time. Inspired in part by Chance's experiences on LSD, it's a piece of music that jaunts through something like half a dozen different genres from jazz to funk to soul to pop to create some a trippy, upbeat version of hip hop.

For that reason, you should listen to Acid Rap holistically. But even on its own, the video for "Everybody's Something" is the wonderful—the perfect spacey complement to an equally song.


You see chance rapping over footage from everything to an aerial view of his hometown of Chicago to footage from Fox news to black and white Civil Rights-era video. It's hypnotizing. And it gets better every time.
