This afternoon, Chance The Rapper and Lil B The Based God surprised us with their collaborative mixtape. It was rumored to be in the works for a minute, with Chance confirming said rumors the other month. The joint six-song project is available for free download here.
Among the "Free Based Freestyles" offered on the tape, we get "What's Next." It's sort of an introspective, philosophical record, with Chance and Lil B questioning life, and that incessant question, "what's next?" As rappers, they probably get hit with that question way too often. "Don't follow what it seems to me, everything you see ain't what it seems to be," Chance spits. Lil B counters, "I'm starting to feel like it's them or me, we living but it's misery."
Thoughts on the project?
Woke up this morning, didn't know what's next
Then I read a text, asking me what's next
Sit back to text, said mind your own
When you find your home, go to sleep
And dream your own
