“Acid Rain” Podcast (Acid Rap)

Chance the rapper is the new upcoming popular artist of the century, delivering songs that are meant to create controversy and address issues that are unspoken of. His music is something new, maybe categorized as hip-hop but can definitely be a topic made to be discussed. This unique artist released his album Acid Rap on April 30, 2013 featuring great artist such as Childish Gambino and many other talented musicians. My favorite song from his 13 song album is Acid Rain, which is the song I have selected to discuss in my podcast. I hope you like it, enjoy!
