Chance The Rapper wants to know what songs fans would like to hear at his "Acid Rap" concerts.

Chance The Rapper fielded suggestions from fans for songs to perform at the upcoming concerts he's holding in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Acid Rap. He says that he intends to run through the entirety of the iconic mixtape, but has time for a few more fan favorites from elsewhere in his discography.

"In addition to doing Acid Rap in full, I may do 3 or 4 songs at the concert that aren’t on there. Any suggestions?" One of the most liked suggestions was "Sunday Candy," which he dropped alongside Nico Segal and The Social Experiment back in 2015 for their album, Surf. Other suggestions included "Prom Night," "Summer Friends," "Same Drugs," "Juke Jam," and more. "Way way back when I saw you in 2013 you did a cold play cover. That would be awesome again!" one fan wrote.

Chance recently reflected on the making of Acid Rap during an interview with Complex. He detailed just had bad his dependency on drugs was at the time. “I probably would have died,” Chance The Rapper remarked to the publication. “Definitely, the way that I was living at that time. I had everything in excess. Right after I dropped the project, I went on a few tours where I really didn’t make any money. Then I went on my first tour, my headlining tour, where I made some money.”

“If I hadn’t had my spirit tugged on- literally- and a calling to become a better version of myself, then I would have died for sure,” Chance continued later in the interview. “Then I would just be the representative of acid and I’m so much more.”
