CPL Alum Chance The Rapper Drops ‘Acid Rap’
It’s been a very exciting week for Chicago hip-hop, to put it lightly. Yesterday, Homewood native Rockie Fresh, who recently signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group dropped his mixtape, ‘The Birthday Tape.’
Today, the excitement continues with the release of ‘Acid Rap’ from Chance The Rapper. Chance holds a special place in the heart of the CPL.
“While in high school at Jones College Prep, he was a regular at the Harold Washington Library’s YouMedia center and attended and participated in events put on by Young Chicago Authors, including its Tuesday-night #WordPlay open mikes and its renowned month-long Louder Than a Bomb festival.
We hope that the experiences and opportunities that Chance had at the CPL will inspire other up-and-coming artists to use the resources of the library, and city of Chicago as a whole to cultivate their talent and ambition.
Congratulations to Chance The Rapper on the release of ‘Acid Rap.’ and we can’t wait to see where your career goes from here!
