Acid Rap

Artist: 
Esham
Label: 
Reel Life Productions

After what can only called "minimal research" on who Esham is and what he's about, I can say with confidence that he is definitely on that grind. Esham has consistently dropped at least 1 album a year for the last 20, and he's gotten a pretty decent fan following. This year, in lieu of his upcoming album "Scribble", Esham dropped the first single off of it called "Trust No One".

Chance the Rapper is an icon for our time. Aside from his rap career blowing up despite him not having a record label, his new single titled Angels (feat. Saba) is amazing. An ode to his home town of Chicago, Chance laces a mixture of appreciation and criticism into Angels. He discusses his rise into stardom and how it influenced his relationship between his family and his relationship to the city of Chicago. In the line saying "You can't touch me, I got angels" one cannot help but feel a sense of rising pride and accomplishment.
