Since his April 2013 breakout, Acid Rap, Chance the Rapper has had fans eagerly anticipating his debut album. And while there's currently no release date -- or even announced timetable -- for the album, we do know it'll have some pretty outstanding features.
As we wait, though, we'll be able to enjoy the sounds of Surf, the upcoming release from Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment, which will include plenty of raps from Chance. And a horde of others.
"Every record has like 50 people on it," the rapper told The Fader in a new cover story on The Social Experiment, a quartet which includes him, Donnie, producer/engineer Nate Fox and producer/keyboardist Peter Cottontale. "The idea is to make a singular, four-minute-and-30-second song that feels like a year's worth of music."
There's no confirmed release date on that project, either, but the crew has been working steadfastly on it for months, so hopefully it'll be out soon.
And as for why a Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment project is on deck before a new one from one of the most buzzed-about young MCs in recent years? Simple, really.
"Surf is Nico's project," Chance said, referring to Donnie by his real name. "He was working on it when we decided to be The Social Experiment, so we decided that his project should be first."
