Chance The Rapper On A Roll With New Video, Mixtape

Already at 50,000 views just a day after posting, Chance The Rapper's new video for "Smoke Again" teases fans awaiting the release of his wildly anticipated mixtape, Acid Rap.

"Smoke Again," which features surreal wordplay from California-based rapper Ab-Soul, breaks from the city exploration concepts of the three previous Acid Rap-related clips for a more typical clip of dudes hanging out.

In that sense, "Smoke Again" is a disappointment. (Perhaps they just needed a break after conceiving and executing this). That said, the track itself is, if you'll permit a pun, a burner. So we can deal. Acid Rap comes into consciousness tomorrow.
