Chance The Rapper dropped a new song today on SoundCloud, featuring fellow Chicago rapper Noname Gypsy. Listen above and get the free download from SoundCloud.

First of all, the wordplay here is excellent. Chance The Rapper has a really unique flow, and he's got a great ability to have fun on a track while being thought-provoking. Noname comes through with some killer bars herself. The lyrics are dense with references, but they're still very relatable.

Cam O'bi's production is smooth and leaves plenty of space for Chance and Noname to shine. It's a heady track that doesn't try too hard. As Chance says at the end, "Boom bap, and you don't stop."

The SoundCloud cover art is a square section of Gustave Doré's 1855 engraving called Jacob Wrestling With The Angel, which portrays the Old Testament story from Genesis 32:22-32.
