Listen: Chance the Rapper - "The Writer"

Chance the Rapper

Don't get your hopes up too much - "The Writer" isn't a brand new song from Chance the Rapper following up the new stuff he's recorded in his home studio, rather, it's a throwback from 2012, maybe an outtake from his breakout mixtape 10Day. Wherever and whenever it's from, it's a great song, with Chance juxtaposing braggadocio ("I'm a writer, probably as good as Elton John") with more introspective lyrics about his struggle to get, well, where he is now.  It's awesome listen - check it out.
