Songs of the Day

Late night blogging, cuz that's how I roll.  Got the final three tracks to knock out this evening: "Acid Rain," "Chain Smoker," and "Everything's Good (Good Ass Outro)."
Off the bat, I dig the vibe of "Acid Rain," which I would hoping coming from the track that most closely shares the name of the title.  Nothing's particularly crazy about Chance's flow or lyrics on this track, but the beat definitely let's you groove with him.  I dig the quoting of R. Kelly's melody on "The World's Greatest," took me a second to remember what song he was referencing exactly - a cool groove to go back to.  Solid track.
Honestly, "Chain Smoker" is probably my least favorite track on the album.  Neither the beat or Chance's flow are doing anything for me.  And it's really not all that bad considering that I don't really dislike the track, it's just not up to far with the rest of the album.  I also find the hook annoying, which isn't something that you generally want lol.  Ok track, nothing incredible.
I think my favorite part of "Everything's Good (Good Ass Outro)" is the way that Chance says "Dillaaaaa" in his first line - a good way to start off.  The voicemail in the beginning definitely reminds me of Kendrick's good kid, m.A.A.d city, which is probably some kind of nod.  Dig the jazzy feel to the track, especially with the trumpet and the upright bass.  Going back into the "Good Ass Intro" groove is a nice tie in for the whole shebang.  Solid.
