While 10 Day offered a first major taste of his rhyming potential, Chance The Rapper‘s Acid Rap is a deeper, more emotionally complex work. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the Chicago rapper has been receiving great feedback from it. In an interview with MTV, Chance has now revealed that there was “a lot of acid involved” in making the record. However, it didn’t become a serious problem for the recording process.
“No, it’s not hard to rap on acid,” he explained. “But it wasn’t the biggest component at all. It was something that I was really interested in for a long time during the making of the tape, but it’s not necessarily a huge faction at all. It was more so just a booster, a bit of fuel. It’s an allegory to acid, more so than just a tape about acid.”
