Celebrating Chance the Rapper's 'Acid Rap' Week
This is unofficially Chance the Rapper week in Chicago.
Driving the news: The hip-hop artist is celebrating the 10th anniversary of his mixtape "Acid Rap" with pop-ups, scavenger hunts, new canned beverages and a huge show tomorrow night at the United Center.
Context: Chance has released highly successful studio albums, but his career effectively started when he put out "Acid Rap" as his second mixtape.
- Since that mixtape dropped in 2013, he has become a worldwide sensation, including recently winning our poll for best Chicago hip-hop artist.
What they said: Chicago Tribune critic Greg Kot reviewed the mixtape in May 2013, saying "This is his show, a springboard for his versatility as an MC, thinker, improviser and surrealist."
What's happening: Chance has made this anniversary about more than just his United Center performance. He's opened a pop-up exhibit and store at WNDR museum in the West Loop.
