14 Chance The Rapper Songs You Should Listen To

2016 has been a great year for Chance the Rapper. He released his third mixtape, Coloring Book independently and for free. It became the first streaming-only album to chart on Billboard, ranking at #8 on the "Billboard 200" chart. His song "Angels" from the mixtape was nominated for a MTV VMA. Additionally, he has been featured on songs like Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam", Busta Rhymes' "Hello", and Jamila Woods' "LSD". With that being said, here is a list of some of my favorite Chance the Rapper songs.

1. Hey Ma ft. Lili K and Peter Cottontale

This was the closing song from Chance the Rapper's first mixtape 10 Day. It's a definite dedication to all moms or "anyone who has been a mother to a motherless child".

2. Juke Juke

This song, also on 10 Day, is filled with energy. It's really hard not to dance to this one.

3. Juke Jam ft. Towkio and Justin Bieber

I couldn't put "Juke Juke" on the list without putting this one on as well. The description and storytelling really shines. It's hard not to vibe to this one.

4. Everybody's Something ft. Saba and BJ the Chicago Kid

First of all, the Slum Village sample snatches you in immediately. On top of that, Chance's ad-libs fit so well. Saba killed his verse and BJ the Chicago Kid's vocals are so soulful and calming in contrast with the hard beat.

5. Cocoa Butter Kisses ft. Vic Mensa and Twista

This is the song that really made me become a Chance fan. Most teenagers and young adults can relate to this song. The beat drop is so heavy and perfect in timing for the calming music that preludes it. The features are perfect for this song. When I heard Twista, I was like

6. Lost ft. Noname

This song was my first introduction to Noname. She and Chance never disappoint in their collaborations. This is a beautiful song about an almost meaningless relationship and how both partners deal with being in it.

7. How Great ft. Jay Electronica and My Cousin Nicole

This is the perfect mix of gospel and rap music. Jay Electronica's verse is probably my favorite guest verse on Coloring Book.

8. Blessings (Reprise) ft. Ty Dolla Sign

This is the closing song on Coloring Book and the emotion is overflowing. From the lyrics to the vocals this song is top notch.

9. Wonderful Everyday: Arthur

This song made me fall in love with the Arthur TV show all over again.

10. Brain Cells

The opening verse is just wild to me. I still try to rap along with it, but that never turns out well. Additionally, Peter Cottontale's production is definitely head bobbing.

11. Windows ft. Alex Wiley and Akenya Seymour

I feel so happy and carefree when I hear this song and Akenya's vocal's had me like

12. Prom Night

This song had me so excited about prom. It's perfect for any "highschool senior" playlist.

13. Same Drugs

This song is so sentimental and always reminds me, "Don't forget the happy thoughts. All you need is happy thoughts."

14. Acid Rain

This song is so chill but at the same the lyrics still make you think. Plus, watching him perform this at Lollapalooza when he says the "eyes closed seeing arenas" line is just dope.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
