Chance The Rapper “Good Enough” Mixtape Download & Stream
Chance The Rapper releases Good Enough, an early Mixtape dropped approximately in 2009 Presented by Instrumentality. The 9-track tape Features songs such as “Good Enough”, “In My Place”, & “Something Bout Us”. Good Enough gives listeners a welcoming glimpse into the beginnings of one of the game’s most promising young artists.
For most fans, the story of Chance the Rapper begins with his 10-day suspension during his senior year of high school when he began working on #10Day, a project that slowly became a real thing over the course of the following year. To some, it began in 2013, with the success of Acid Rap. But Chance, naturally, already had been working on music for several years, building up his lyrical skills at open mic nights and collaborating with his friend Justin (who, as the real heads know, gets shouted out on Acid Rap) in a hip-hop fusion project called Instrumentality.
Back then, Chance The Rapper was known as Chano (a name collaborators from this period, like Donnie Trumpet mastermind Nico Segal, still occasionally call him), and music was, obviously, still a budding interest that pretty much only his peers were aware of. Now that he’s famous and making songs with Justin Bieber and stuff, though, there’s naturally a little more curiosity emerging surrounding Chance‘s musical origins. Reddit user lavmar posted links to a stash of early Chance/Chano/Instrumentality material from an old Facebook page, and now they’re making the rounds.
Good Enough, already find Chance The Rapper beginning to stake out some of his signature stylistic tics, such as his tendency to drift into a melodic, half-sung cadence. The themes, influences and thoughts that came together so smoothly on Acid Rap and #10Day are all there in rough but surprisingly polished pieces. ” Chance calls himself “Hercules/mixed with a bit Freddy Mercury/Mixed with a little Kanye and little MJ.” On Good Enough he raps over Coldplay, Daft Punk and Death Cab for Cutie.
Good Enough is the third album from Instrumentality, and is perhaps the point where we really start to get an indication of Chance’s future success. The project is highlighted by “Home Again”, a track created in response to Chance staying in Chicago rather than relocating to DC, and can almost be thought of as a reprise to “Beddy Bye”. However, one of the highlights from Good Enough is his rap over Daft Punk’s“Something About Us,” off their Discovery album. Chance flows over the groovy track with ease, venting about the dynamic between himself and an unnamed lady friend. Toward the end of the project we get dark and gloomy track “NvrSayNvr,” where we find Chance dismissing thoughts of not being Good Enough.
Good Enough shows obvious signs of an artist “finding” themselves”. It’s easy to hear similarities to Lil Wayne and KiD CuDi on these tapes. Listening to an early version Chance shows his development as an artist. He has really found his own sound and unique way of voicing his opinions.
