Chance The Rapper's New Song "No Better Blues" Will Make Or Break Your Weekend


Chance the Rapper

Ok, let’s talk about Chance the Rapper and No Better Blues, because that’s what you’ve been listening to all day anyway. And if it isn’t… why? Chance and The Social Experiment just released the track via SoundCloud this past Thursday. Besides being a really cool song (I’ll get to that part) No Better Blues also represents another steps in creators’ efforts to get their work straight to the people, skipping industry middlemen. Since CtR and The Social Experiment posted the link to their Twitter, the track has reached No. 2 on the network’s Trending 140.

Chance the Rapper is trying another unconventional avenue for music distribution - direct SoundCloud download.

The release is part of Twitter’s not-quite-thriving music service, so users can listen to it without even leaving the page/app. On Thursday, the social-media giant announced Twitter Audio Cards, which will allow listeners to listen to audio directly from their Twitter timelines with one click. Users can then dock the song in the corner and continue playback as they browse inside the mobile app.

Nick Offerman Has Directed A Music Video And It's Full Of Celebrities


Nick Offerman Michael Shannon Melissa McCarthy Conan O'Brien Chance the Rapper

He's best known for playing the grumpy breakfast loving Ron Swanson on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation', but Nick Offerman has turned his hand to another profession: music video director. He's overseen the delightfully weird video for Tweedy's song, 'Low Key', which also features a host of celebrity cameos.

It's a different gig for the actor, usually seen in front of the camera

Tweedy is the latest project from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, comprised of himself and his son Spencer Tweedy. 'Low Key' is the first single from their first album, 'Sukierae', and the offbeat video shows them going door-to-door in attempts to sell their record to disinterested members of the public. Man of Steel actor Michael Shannon features as the assistant of the record label boss, whilst Melissa McCarthy, Conan O'Brien, Andy Richter and Chance the Rapper feature amongst the bemused homeowners who are visited by the band. There's also a very strange twist at the end of the video, but we won't ruin the surprise!

And where better to enjoy this multi-genre theme than Denver, Colorado, home to the likes of everyone from gentle folk rock crooners The Lumineers to industrial Goth collective Velvet Acid Christ?

Childish Gambino, Chance The Rapper Hint At Full EP Collaboration


Childish Gambino Chance the Rapper

Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper have piqued the interest of their fans after a tweet from one of the rappers gave away that the pair could be working on a collaborative EP. Childish Gambino tweeted "now that chance finally released his verse on "worst guys", maybe he can hurry up and finish the rest of our EP #hinthint."

The day after Chance debuted his unreleased verse for Gambino's 'The Worst Guys,' the 'Heartbeat' star took to Twitter to tease their fans with word of a possible joint release. There is no word on when the project will arrive, but hopefully Childish's nudging will see things moving in the right way as soon as possible.

Having seen Chance's name on Gambino's Because The Internet song, it was naturally assumed that the Chicago hip hop star would be featured in a verse until fans realised that all they'd be getting was a hook. However, performing yesterday at the Governor's Ball, Childish welcomed Chance onstage to perform the previously-unheard lyrics from the track.
