Hear a Chance The Rapper Verse That James Blake Didn’t Like



We heard roommates Chance The Rapper and James Blake together on the “Life Round Here” remix, but before that, there was apparently another idea in the works. Chance shared a lost verse on SoundCloud with a note that explains why this didn’t make the final cut: “James never liked this vers.” He also tweeted about it: “this was the og idea for me and james’ first collaboration.” It’s more subdued than what we ended up hearing on the final version—the kind of singing/rapping combination that few rappers can pull off. Even though the pair decided to go another route for “Life Round Here,” this is a nice hint at what else we might hear from them in the future.
