What inspires Chance The Rapper? We already know that his wife (IGH) does, but music also plays a role in his career, believe it or not. The week after releasing his first album The Big Day, Chance revealed some of his favorite songs in an extensive Twitter thread. So we compiled them into one big Apple Music playlist. Well, almost all of them: some weren't available on streaming services, and we chose to omit due to some insanely troubling allegations and convictions against the artists in question. Try and guess which!
Other than that, it's a solid list. You've got Kanye West, Hall & Oates, Joanna Newsom, "My Boo" by Ghost Town DJs, Kirk Franklin, and more. Maybe you'll hear a few of the songs before Chance's set on his upcoming tour. Listen below, and read The FADER's review of The Big Day here.
