In an age in which male artists swim in very shallow creative waters, Chance the Rapper is a breath of fresh air.
Watch him in action below….
‘Book’ peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200 and scored a 90/100 score on Metacritic.
On how the project was inspired by his faith?
I never really set out to make anything that could pretend to be new gospel or pretend to be the gospel. It’s just music from me as a Christian man because I think before I was making music as a Christian child. And in both cases I have imperfections, but there was a declaration that can be made through going all the stuff I’ve been through the last few years.
