James Blake Recruits Chance The Rapper For “Life Round Here (Remix)”
James Blake is no stranger to hip-hop—he played Drake’s OVO Fest earlier this year and his new album features the RZA—but this is still a pleasant and welcome surprise. The English singer-songwriter grabbed Chicago’s Chance The Rapper for a remix of Blake’s “Life Round Here” and the results are predictably impressive. The song finds Chance dropping a typically hallucinatory and playful verse over Blake’s haunting beat and morose vocals. Check it out above.
