Chance The Rapper Explains Which Of His Songs Is Most Important To Him
Yesterday Chance The Rapper took part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit, which gave fans an opportunity to ask Chance questions. Most notably, Chance was asked which one of his songs meant the most to him.
"Which of your songs means the most to you? And why is that?"
"With as much thought and hesitation allowed to me at the moment, I'd blindly resort to throwing Everything's Good (Good Ass Outro) out as my most important track to date. Acid Rap's intro is The Thesis of my album, as well as my own introduction to you as a listener. Kind of like the foreword in a book, in third person. It took me so long, after beginning the process of recording and creating of the project, to write an ending to the album. About 3 1/2 weeks before the tape dropped I wrote and recorded Everything's Good, which I knew from the first time I heard it would be the outro. During the session my Dad called me to apologize about a laptop he had told me he'd buy me awhile back. The laptop wasn't really a big deal to me then, but my Dad has always been one to give provocative and loving speeches via random, sporadic phone calls. So I listened. About a minute into the call i got teary eyed and started really listening to him and the conviction in his voice. I could hear my Dad speaking in this calm and fulfilled voice about his pride in what I'm doing and his pure love of my success. And that was it. everything was good."
