I had to feature this oldie but goodie from Chance The Rapper, because HipHop these days are short of lyricist. I will admit I was late on the bandwagon when it comes to listening to his music. I first heard about Chance through the mainstream media which made me skeptical of his lyrical content or skill.
After discovering that Chance was a Lyrical Beast I did farther research to find out what made him so mainstream. It was probably his father's political connections (who worked side by side with senator Barack Obama) and a few other high up associates. You can have all the talent in the world but without connections you are just a hobbyist.
