Chance the Rapper & The Social Experiment – Gimmie A Call (feat. Taylor Bennett) [Original Mix]

This post was originally published on this site

From singing songs about his daughter to providing support to his hometown of Chicago, Chance the Rapper is an artist who quite obviously values the relationships in his life. Keeping it in the family this time, Chance has enlisted his brother, Taylor Bennett, and longtime friends and collaborators The Social Experiment for his latest offering.

In a time where popular hip hop production is an increasingly digital art form, Chance the Rapper and his friends take a step back with this soulful jam. Sparing a few piano keys and pieces of percussion, “Gimmie A Call” is performed almost completely a capella. Chance the Rapper’s friendly vocals welcome the listener into the track as the voices of The Social Experiment begin to form around his warm and unmistakable croon. The song drops to just a beat-box as Taylor Bennett lays down his inspired verse, before the Social Experiment close out the track with a calming outro.

From working with various initiatives to support the growth of education and music programs, to playing a pivotal role in saving Soundcloud from it’s demise, Chance the Rapper has captured the hearts of many and easily taken the unofficial title as Chicago’s sweetheart.

All accomplished by the age of 24, the Chi-town native has maintained a high-profile and respectfully cashed in on his success this year. Described as an “annual ranking of the most influential young people in business”, Chance makes his way as this years youngest entry on Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list. Amongst endorsements with large-scale brands like Nike and Apple, and immense success from Coloring Book, 2017 has thus far played out to be the best year of his career yet, and just the start of his mark on the music industry.
