Chicago's rap scene has been particularly generous to us lately. Sure there's Chief Keef, an endless font of headline fodder if nothing else, but the real excitement has been coming from the Save Money crew and their friends. Chance the Rapper made SPIN's Hottest MCs list and delivered one of the most exciting mixtapes of the year thus far, Acid Rap. Former Kids These Days song-rhymer Vic Mensa blessed us with "Orange Soda" and "Hollywood LA." Now we have the deep-voiced Mick Jenkins with his slightly Southern flow, who wrangles both of the aforementioned spitters to accompany him on "Cross Roads." OnGaud provides the loping, soulful production — a solid foundation for the loosely listing bars of Chance (who's busy dropping "multi-entendres") and the stylish stutter verse provided by Vic.
