And we thought Chance the Rapper and Nosaj Thing was a dream collaboration...

While "Paranoia" is undoubtedly one of the best rap records of the year, we just were not mentally/spiritually prepared for a collaboration between Chance and ingenious downcast producer-crooner James Blake.

James Blakes' latest album, Overgrown is rife with expansive, forward-thinking hip-hop beats that are just begging to be flipped by capable rappers, and we hoped that after Drake invited Blake to play his OVO Fest in Toronto, rappers would take note of the wealth of sample-worthy music in James Blake's oeuvre. Fingers crossed that this remix of "Life Round Here" is just the beginning.
