Not it (for me at least)

I am a 24 year old black man from Chicago who grew up listening to Chance The Rapper. So there is absolutely  no bias when I say that “The Big Day” is not it. This album sounds like Disney and Nick Jr had a kid. This album sounds like the Backyardigans and Dora the Explorer made it. This album sounds like wearing 10 condoms during sex. This album sounds like the safest, most clean, most I’m in love and everything is beautiful ass shit ever and I don’t rock with it. The only songs I run back are “Handsome” and “Big Fish”, everything else if for aunties and 14 year olds. Is there a problem making an album like this? No. Are there high quality raps and beats? Yes.(Too much house shit tho) Do I miss the Chance that I met at Lollapalooza 2011, clearly fucked up on some type of psychedelic drug and a square in his mouth, Yes. Bring back fucked up Chance. At least musically.
