Few rappers have experienced 2013 quite like Chance the Rapper has, going from relatively unknown to landing on year-end best of lists left and right as well as the BBC’s Sound of 2014 longlist for his impressive Acid Rap mixtape. For all the fame, though, he’s managed to keep a low profile granting an interview here and there. But he recently took some time during a stop on his Social Experiment tour in Nashville to talk to the guys over at Good Music All Day. In the interview, he discusses dropping off his Australian tour dates with Eminem, his relationship with James Blake, his strategy for being a successful independent rapper, his debut album, and more. And if today’s cryptic Twitter exchange between Chance and Justin Bieber has anything to do with a musical collaboration in the works, 2014 should be an interesting year for the young Chicago rapper. Watch the interview above.
