This song is so dope. Never heard the original or the band Hundred Waters, but the Skrillex rework and Chance feature got me to listen instantly. Hundred Waters is an Indie Folk band from the University of Florida that somehow ended up signing with Skrillex's OWSLA label. An unexpected pairing with the predominantly electric heavy acts but good music is good music. Can't wait to hear more.
Wasn't feeling this track until I saw him perform it on SNL this past weekend, but it's definitely growing on me, plus you got the legend Kells on the track, that's worth it alone to give it a listen. What's so special about his SNL performance too is that he's the first independent artist to ever perform on the show. Free download too!
Don't know too much about London based duo Snakehips but throw Tinashe and Chance The Rapper on a track and I have to listen. "All My Friends" is an anti-party anthem, chill and mellow track where our fav Tinashe and Chi-town rapper Chance both get to shine. With me getting up there in my age, lol, I definitely relate to the track, I dig it.

Surprise! Chance The Rapper just dropped an entirely FREE album on iTunes! Not really a follow up to his 2013 effort "Acid Rap" but more of a side project featuring Donnie Trumpet and Chance's band The Social Experiment. "Surf" is a refreshing musical album that blends hip hop and jazz, a welcome listen differentiating itself from all the trap and bass heavy rap that's currently out right now. Littered with a bunch of features from Big Sean to a member of Migos even to Erykah Badu, "Surf" is the perfect summer feel good album. Free downloads while it lasts!
