After an agonizing wait, SURF is finally here, and Chance the Rapper fans are rejoicing in the positive summer vibes from Donnie Trumpet & co. The bouncy jazz-bop of SURF is what we've come to expect from The Social Experiment, but we were surprised by some of the guest artists on the album-- in a very good way.
One of the most exciting Soc. Experiment collabs comes on "Wanna Be Cool," featuring Big Sean, Jeremih, and the lesser-known Kyle, who sounds like a young Chance. The song starts with Chance rapping, "I don't wanna be cool, I just wanna be me"-- his sentiments punctuated by Jeremih's backing vocals. Then, Big Sean and Kyle tell us they haven't gotten where they are by trying to fit in.
SURF is available right here. Let us know what you think about Chance's latest project.
Only class I'm passing is English and Math
I don't know, maybe because they both got commas
Maybe 'cuz my older bro was on the honor roll
And the other one was always in front of the Honor
So I'm in the middle like the line in the divide sign
- Big Sean
