Chance the Rapper was in the giving spirit, and dropped two new singles Thursday night.
The Chicago artist has been on a roll with dropping single after single this year. In July, he released four of them which ended his music hiatus, since his Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: Re-Wrapped mixtape in 2017. Now, he has blessed us with “My Own Thing,” and “The Man Who Has Everything.”
“My Own Thing” is very reminiscent of the classic Chance, with a light-hearted feel and steady beat to easily vibe out to. The lyrics are an ode to his fiancé, letting all the women trying to holler or sliding in his DM know that he is off limits. The track also features rapper Joey Purp, who kills it in the second verse. Watch the freestyle he did with our very own Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk of the L.A. Leakers, here.
On the other hand, “The Man Who Has Everything” presents listeners with a more chill, laid back energy. But of course, Chance never fails to deliver positive messages to his fans once again. He addresses the issue about what to get him for Christmas, considering he is a man that has everything. But his lyrics at the end answers it all when he says,
“But like the Christmas tape there’s things that I gotta get clear
Like my papa ask the same question every year
“What to get for my boy who has everything?”
I said, “I’ll take anything but everything,” you know?
