Especially this past Thursday night, when Spotify hosted the release party at Garfield Park Conservatory, bringing over 500 fans together for a live gig.
To celebrate the album, “Chance’s Big Day,” his longtime friend DJ Vic Lloyd played while fans gathered under the palms and sipped cocktails named after the rapper’s mixtapes.
Chance came out super-hyped as he hit the stage performing a teaser rendition of “Groceries” off the new album. During the set he performed songs from all three of his previously released mixtapes 10 Day, Acid Rap, and Coloring Book including “All We Got,” “Favorite Song,” “No Problems,” “Brain Cells,” “Same Drugs,” and “Blessings.”
When introducing his new song, “Do You Remember,” he thanked all his Chicago fans for being on this journey with him from the beginning. He humbly admitted he was actually scared to play this new track for them as everyone cheered and music history was made.
