Chance the Rapper on tour with Mac Miller and Meek Mill (playing Festival Pier on 7/13)

While Chance the Rapper has yet to release an official album, he has put out two stunning mix-tapes, including Acid Rap which was released online a few months ago.  As young as he is, this Chicago kid knows how to rhyme, proving it as he rapidly spits out lines to the beat of funky rhythms and occasional yelps among a star-studded crew of featured artists.  Now he’s going on tour with Mac Miller, adding other rap stars along the way including Philly’s own Meek Mill.  He’ll be playing Festival Pier July 13th.  Tickets and info can be found here, and you can check out the whole mixtape below, or download it here.
