There is no doubt in our minds that Chance the Rapper knows the essentials of nailing down hype and status in the rap industry: You have to hit them hard, and, more importantly, you have to hit them fast. That's why he's been on a roll this past month, releasing track after track, like March's wild "Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch)" and "Child's Play" with SZA. Now he's back with "The Writer," a previously unreleased song he dominates on, spitting rhymes over an Apollo Brown beat about climbing to the top, and proving yet again why he's getting there faster than ever. Hear the new-old track above.
