Chance The Rapper has been out for a better part of the decade now although he hasn’t been releasing a ton of music. He’s known for being quite positive in his raps and his Coloring Book mixtape is living proof of that.

But while many people discovered Chance The Rapper through Coloring Book, the Chicago MC began his career with the 2012 mixtape called 10 Day. One year later he dropped another mixtape called Acid Rap which immediately became a classic amongst hip-hop heads looking for something new and interesting to listen to.For years, boths the mixtapes weren’t available on streaming services which was frustrating for fans who just wanted to get their daily dose of Chance.

But now, in anticipation for his debut album, Chance has decided to bring both 10 Day and Acid Rap back into the fold. Since Coloring Book, the rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, and activist has moved at his own pace: hopping on other people’s tracks from time to time, releasing the occasional multi-song SoundCloud drop, investing in civic and family life. He’s talked about releasing full-length projects with Kanye West and Childish Gambino, but we haven’t heard any of that music.

Now, though, he really is getting ready to unveil a big project. All year Chance and his circle of collaborators have been tweeting about his official debut Owbum and in February he specified it would be out in July. As of today you can even pre-order it, though he hasn’t revealed anything else about it yet: no title, no tracklist, no cover art, no official release date. There’s also an option to pre-order a digital copy of the album along with early access to a world tour Chance has yet to detail, and he’s selling $10 raffle tickets for charity:

“ENTER FOR A CHANCE TO GET ACCESS TO EXCLUSIVE CHANCE THE RAPPER FAN EXPERIENCES + PRIZES. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO SOCIAL WORKS.”

While waiting, you can listen to the full mixtape below. They will give you a chance to see what the Chicago MC is capable of and just how versatile he is.
