Chance The Rapper's debut album has finally landed. The Big Day arrived at 1 p.m. EST on Friday.


The Big Day is being billed as Chance's debut, though he has built his name off the back of free mixtapes 10 Day, Acid Rap, and his most recent, 2016's Coloring Book. Earlier this month, Chance released 10 Day and Acid Rap on streaming services for the first time, resulting in Acid Rap making its Billboard chart debut at #5.

Earlier this year, Chance released the Tisakorean collab "Groceries" as well as appearing on YBN Cordae's "Bad Idea" and Ed Sheeran's collaborations album. He is also due to headline Woodstock 50 in August.
