Chance the Rapper Releases 4 New Songs

Fans of Chance the Rapper rejoice because the Chi-Town rapper has released four new singles!

At midnight ET on Wednesday (July 18) Chano decided to gift fans with four new EP’s, “Work Out,” “I Might Need Security,” “65th & Ingleside,” and “Wala Cam” featuring fellow Chicago rapper Supa Bwe. The new singles come as a surprise for fans after the “No Problem” rapper caused some confusion about releasing new music this week. During an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Chance hinted at the release of new music when saying “I’m excited for everybody to get that. It’s going to come out just in time for the Special Olympics.” However, following the interview, the rapper took to twitter to tell fans that he was not releasing an album, but reassured them by confirming that he was in the studio.

Along with the release of the album, Chance simultaneously announced that he is adding media mogul to his résumé. In the song “I Might Need Security,” Chance confirmed his acquisition. “I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist b****es outta business,” he rapped. Following the release of the song, Chance confirmed the purchase of the Chicago news site in a press release.

“I’m extremely excited to be continuing the work of the Chicagoist, an integral local platform for Chicago news, events and entertainment. WNYC’s commitment to finding homes for the -ist brands, including Chicagoist, was an essential part of continuing the legacy and integrity of the site.” He said per Stereogum. “I look forward to re-launching it and bringing the people of Chicago an independent media outlet focused on amplifying diverse voices and content.”

Chance the Rapper’s four new songs are available via his website Chanceraps.com and all streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and Soundcloud.
