After a great deal of hard work, Chicago-born rapper Taylor Bennett has gone far beyond the simple title of “Chance the Rapper’s brother.” Following the release of his short film Broad Shoulders and a notable appearance in a recent Billionaire Boys Club lookbook, the 21-year-old Windy City artist serves up his first project in over a year. For his latest album, Bennett delivers the nine-song, guest-heavy Restoration of an American Idol. The Chicago rapper’s new record features appearances from his superstar brother, Lil Yachty, Jeremih, Raury, Stro, Supa Bwe and more, while production comes courtesy of Mike WiLL Made-It, CEO Beatz, Ludlow, Zig and others. “I think the whole idea of my music — and especially with this project — has always been to bring people together,” Bennett explained to FADER.
