For all listeners outside his earliest fans, Chance The Rapper first burst onto the scene back in 2012 with his mixtape 10 Day. Chance recorded his first full-length project following a 10-day suspension from high school, providing the young rapper with a distinct origin story and the music to make people pay attention to him.
Chano followed it up quickly with the mixtape that made him a rising star, Acid Rap. Released just one year after 10 Day, Chance released his next project for free too, despite having enough of a buzz to release a project through a label by this point in time.
