Many of us still recall a time when a rapper’s mixtapes were free for download off of questionable and reputable internet sources alike. In this era, rappers had the opportunity to put their work out there and potentially launch their careers by allowing listeners unabridged access to their music online. Chance the Rapper rose to relevance in such a way, as his ‘Acid Rap’ mixtape amazed thousands.
Those days are long gone, as streaming services have made it easier than ever for artists to put their content out to millions of users. However, many of the mixtape gems have been lost as a result.
Chance the Rapper will finally be aiding in bridging the gap between the free download mixtape and streaming service eras. Starting today, his widely acclaimed mixtapes ’10 Day’ and ‘Acid Rap’ will officially be available for streaming on Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, and more.
