16. Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment – Surf

I really love Chance the Rapper. I didn’t realize it until this year, when he released two more free projects and I saw him live in his home city closing out Pitchfork but God damn, Chance has so much talent just bubbling over the surface waiting to be released to the world. He is youthful yet wise, poetic yet aggressive and everything about him is fresh and awesome. He may be over hyped and he may not have even been the main contributor to this album but he is definitely 100% real. I don’t think he gets enough credit for never having signed with a record company nor released any of his music for sale. He loves his craft and he loves what he’s doing enough that he could care less about make a fortune. I love that about him because it embodies everything I wish music would actually be like. Specifically for this album, Surf used Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment exceptionally and I loved the tracks with the horn sections the best. Chance’s rapping was still prevalent and just as impressive as before but his ability to take a step back for his band to shine was really awesome and created an underlying element to the album that I really enjoyed.
