Rapsody Crowns Chance The Rapper's "Acid Rap" "Album Of The Year"

Exclusive: Rapsody says Chance The Rapper had the album of the year "without a doubt."

When asked about her selection for "Album of the Year," Rapsody doesn't hold back with her opinion. HipHopDX asked the North Carolina emcee to name her pick for the category and she was not doubtful regarding her choice.

"Oh, that’s easy," Rapsody said in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "I’m gonna give that one to my brother from Chicago, Chance The Rapper for Acid Rap. That’s easy…without a doubt. I won’t even blink." 

Chance The Rapper's Acid Rap was also given the honor of being SPIN's #2 "Album of the Year," second to Kanye West's Yeezus. Chance earned the top slot in another category as he was named SPIN's "Rapper of the Year."

For Rapsody, the project deserves such praise.

"One thing I love is that he doesn’t sound like anybody," Rapsody said, praising Chance. "I was just talking to someone the other day, and you can’t put [Chance] in a one lane, category, or one box. It’s Hip Hop, but it’s also funky, and he sings on it, so he’s got all these different characteristics, ideas and sounds that he brings together and makes his own. And when he dances, you know it’s Chicago, ‘cause I see a similar thing in Vic Mensa who’s also from Chicago. So that’s what I love, and it's fun and honest. I actually got to see him record when he did “Lonely Thoughts” from my [She Got Game] record. And he’s just natural, raw talent. The boy has a gift, so that’s what I enjoy. He does what he feels, and it’s like, 'I don’t have to do this just for Hip Hop. I’m just going to do what I feel like doing.'" 

"Lonely Thoughts" is a collaboration between Chance The Rapper and Rapsody. The collab made its way onto the scene through Rapsody's 2013 project, She Got Game. She Got Game can be streamed below, following more of HipHopDX's interview with Rapsody.

  • So Icy Boi!

    When i first met Chance the Rapper I didnt like his style but he told me dat my best friend Lil Wayne is the GOAT... it was so cool from him. so I called my man Weezy to give this broke ass nigga a verse. it was Chance's most important moment of his career. I realized he just sounded like shit on Acid Rap cause those beats suck. he is very dope over YMCMB beats. I bet Birdman will sign him, we talked about it already. swag

    Am I the only one who can't fuck with Chance's unconventional style ? I mean he can flow and has the lyrics but his style is fucking wack to me and on another note MGK's Black Flag is the album / Mixtape of the year straight up shit's on Chance , Eminem and most importantly that fuck boi Yelafag

    Who is Chance the Rapper? Seriously. Album of the year? Hard to argue against R.A. The Rugged Man - Legends never die.

    it was dope, maybe top 5 projects. possibly best mixtape...


    First of all, who gives a SHIT what this lesbian brick faced hoe got to say? Her opinion is irrelevant. Secondly, CHANCE THE FUCKING RAPPER? THE NIGGA THAT HOOKED UP WITH JUSTIN BEIBER? FUCK OUTTA HERE. He sucks ass and his lyrics are corny as hell. Old Michigan J. Frog looking ass nigga. Ayo, the album of the year should go to YEEZUS. Kanye West by far a fucking genius and his intellect shined on that album. PERIOD. Everybody got mad because he wasn't talking about rocking furs or some shit. PEONS! He's teaching y'all that there's a life outside of materialism & your atypical trap beats. Step ya knowledge game up. #TURNTALLDAWAYUP
