Kanye West ft. Chance the Rapper- Chicago Blues
Kanye West and Chance the Rapper on the same track; it's a Chicago dream come true, but this is a song that is more about the nightmares that haunt many in Chicago. Gangs and crime has done a great deal of damage to the streets of Chicago, and the two artists (both Chicago Natives) touch on this.
Although Chicago Blues is an actual sub-genre of Blues music, the title serves as a metaphor to something deeper. The two spill their pain on losing close friends and family to the streets of Chicago. The song is also a call to change amongst the inner-city areas around the world. Chance has mentioned before that one of his greatest musical inspirations is Kanye, so this collab is a dream come true for him as well. Its only right that a song of this intensity is blessed by Production from Kanye himself. Yea, I know... sounds too good to be true. Did you forget it was Fantasy Friday here at Superego?
