SZA – Childs Play feat. Chance the Rapper

Another Chance post… but this time the song is courtesy of the first lady of TDE, SZA. Any time you do anything over XXYYXX’s “About You,” it’s probably going to sound good, but with SZA and Chano teaming up, the song is exceptional. SZA’s voice gives a hypnotizing vibe to the hazy sample, check it out below. Not the first time we have a SaveMoney rapper dropping a verse to the Canadian producer’s hit, Kami de Chukwu did so last year. SZA’s EP is due soon, and she’s on the packed Pitchfork as well.

James Blake – Life Round Here (Remix) feat. Chance the Rapper

We officially have the visuals for the Chance the Rapper remix of James Blake’s hit, “Life Round Here.” The video features the two driving around in a drop top on a rainy day in the forest. Great song, and it’s absolutely awesome that these two are friends. Hopefully more music on the way.
