Recensione: CHANCE THE RAPPER – The Big Day

Dopo il successo arrivato con diversi mixtape, che li sono valsi ben tre Grammy, ecco il primo vero e proprio album per il rapper americano Chance the Rapper (ovvero Chancelor Jonathan Bennett) .

The Big Day, il titolo del disco, contiene 22 brani all’interno dei quali sono ospitate tantissime star dell’hip hop ma non solo basti pensare a CocoRosie o Shawn Mendes. La lista è infinita… Nicki Minaj, John Legend, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, MadeinTYO,  Ben Gibbard, Randy Newman, il fratello di Chance, Taylor Bennett, Smino, Lil Durk , Ari Lennox e Gucci Mane, sono solo alcuni degli artisti che hanno voluto mettere la firma nel disco. 

Le liriche, attente e non banali, risentono del matrimonio del rapper lo scorso marzo e indagano sulle relazioni sociali, sulla famiglia e sul suo ruolo nella società Usa. Temi che con amore, vita di strade e disagi razziali riecheggiano in tutto il disco.

Sul fronte del beat Chance The Rapper esplora un po’ tutte le tendenze, dal soul, alla trap, dall’hip hop morbido e da camera alle puntate in mondi differenti come l’indie o il pop. 

Un bel disco che dire. Se forse dobbiamo trovare un difetto è quello di essere un po’ troppo lungo, sempre se essere traboccante musicalmente sia un difetto ! 
Abbiamo aspettato tanto tempo. Ne è valsa la pena !!!

Score:  7,25

Tre brani da ascoltare subito: All Day Long – Eternal – Hot Shower

Quotes:  

Side chicks can’t dance like this, uh
Side niggas can’t dance like this, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Side niggas can’t step like this, uh-uh
Side niggas can’t stand like this, uh-uh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (You know what time it is)

What you know about this? This before your time
I used to two-step in the 019
I always been fine, this is not new wine
I just happened to find a way to live my whole life in my prime
Side niggas don’t look this good, can’t cook this good
Can’t fuck this good, can’t get right
You send him to the store and forget that he left
You send me to the store, I come back with a chef
I’ll come back out of breath
While your side nigga sittin’ at the club with a booty on his chin like a cleft
I don’t never want two that’s the same as the next
I made the three more famous than Steph
No cap, that’s a roundhouse kick to a Jameson’s neck
I got a Jada Pinkett keeping sure my shame is in check
Cross-legged in the dojo, my master, mentor
Side chicks can’t take out splinters
Side chicks make they Kool-Aid with Splenda
Side chicks can’t come to Auntie Linda’s house
They gon’ send her off, they gon’ send her out
To buy more things that they hid in the couch
Don’t you know that side niggas can’t cop no Tesla?
Pull up in a ring like wrestlers
Pop out at the soccer game with the VVS’s and a bunch of snacks
Model X Falcon, backseat, doing jumping jacks
20-1-9, I want it one of a kind
2020, I’ma be ahead of my time
Twenty thousand leagues, the biggest fish in the pond
But if you never go fishing, it’s something you’ll never find

(Eternal)

My baby mama went celibate
Lies on my breath, she say she couldn’t take the smell of it
Tired of the rumors, every room had an elephant
Tryna find her shoes, rummagin’ through the skeletons
She took away sex, took me out of my element
I tried to do the single-dad mingle-dance
At the club with the iron in my wrinkled pants
You could fall much faster than you think you can
Big hands for my ring, I’ma need a Pringles can
I just want the shine back like a Eagles fan
My ego like “Ah damn, there he go
Prayin’ again, again, the same ol’ thang”
I mean, I ain’t gon’ promise that the pain go away
And you can take your sweet time, but she ain’t gon’ wait
‘Cause a new coat of paint don’t make the stain go away
But he go high (We love you, God)
And we go high
They go low, we go…
Higher, higher

My wife nanny like Fran Drescher
Three damn Grammys, my granny like, “No pressure”
So much style, my stylist got no dresser
Fuck goin’ straight to the pros, I’m professor
Fuck bein’ one of the G.O.A.T.s, I’m Gotenks
Tried to try that with my girl, she “No thanks”
Dropped the bomb, I couldn’t find a Tom Hanks
Got me pressed, tryin’ to find a Von Frank
Who the fuck rocked the boat? It’s gon’ sank
Shootin’ at me point blank with those blanks
They don’t take teenage angst at no banks
(We love you, God)
Tried some new hues like Langston gon’ paint
You gotta come harder than that

(We Go High)

It was all us crammed in the house
Back when my dad was the man of the house
A lot of dads left, they abandoned the house
My dad Joe Jack start a band in the house
He said one friend, one friend in the house
Only one friend in the whole wide world
One day will come when you only have each other
Never give it up for a boy or a girl
We come in peace but we don’t come in pieces
We on some tag-team WWE shit
We look just alike, the prestige is so prestigious
The splitting image of Lupita standing on them beaches
Don’t tweak and don’t be facetious
Those shells’ll shred you to pieces
These niggas faking like demons
But I’ma send ’em to Jesus (This is me and my bro)
Versus all of you heathens
They think I’m reading Ephesians
I have all these niggas hiding, avoiding meetings like vegans
I got the keys like I’m Keegan
I’ll line the trunk with the bleach
And I’ll leave you inside the freezer and let you chill for the weekend
But forget over the weekend and come back inside a month
And I throw you inside the trunk but it’s plastic so it ain’t leakin’
But we can be cool
We can be cool
Me and my brother
We can be cruel
Find your ass
Line your ass up
Go to work on ’em

(Roo)
