It may have been hard for people to mention SURF without attaching Chance The Rapper's name to it, and while he was heavily involved, technically speaking, it was a Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment album. Wyhat that means, is that Chance is still preparing an official follow-up to Acid Rap, and speaking with the BBC's DJ Semtex, he revealed plans to release live favorite, "Paradise" as the first single.
“‘Paradise’ is a touring record,” he said. “It’s a song about being grateful, and it’s a song about celebration and it’s a song about the word. It’s always been a song that we only perform live–I’ve been touring for a year now. It’s releasing soon, it’s the first single.”
On top of the music, Chance has been making an effort to help Chicago youth, organizing a concert targeted at teens in the city, and today, taking some 6 too 11-year-old kids on a surprise field trip. View some Instagram clips of his experience below.
