"Can I Say Something Crazy? I Love You"

Might as well chalk this week up to Chance because Lil Chano is taking it over. A few days back it was a new track with Kaytranada and now he found himself on a remix of one of my favorites from Francis & The Lights. Even if you're not fan of the track, you have to appreciate the lyrical acting from Chance and Francis Farewell Starlite on the video below...

There's a genuine nerdiness in Chance the Rapper that plays really well in today's more accepting culture of being proud of who you are. In other words, I don't think Hip Hop 10 or 20 years ago would have embraced his persona as much as people are now. That's more of a compliment to how much the genre as a whole has matured over the years and a credit to him for refusing to do anything but him as he has ascended over the past few years.

Needless to say Chance's contribution to the track wasn't anything less than stellar. From his measured, playful, roughly choreographed dance moves to his quiet, raspy harmony, it was an overall good look. If you haven't give Francis and The Lights latest album, Farewell Starlite!, a listen, this is a great opportunity to hop on the bandwagon...#MayIHaveThisDance
