Chance The Rapper Assists Jamila Woods on “LSD”
Chance The Rapper is everywhere. After recently popping on Supa Bwe's "Fool Wit It Freestyle," Chance helps out another Chicago artist in Jamila Woods with her single. "LSD" is an ode to Woods and Chance's hometown.
"When I was a kid, getting on Lake Shore Drive from the south side to go downtown was magical," Woods said in a statement about the song. "I lived on the east coast for a few years and people would laugh when I told them we have beaches and a lake we can swim in. I always wanted to write about that. A lot of people get Chicago wrong. I’ve developed this protective feeling about how we’re portrayed, and at the same time I’m acutely aware of the issues we face and the root causes of these issues. It’s important to me that there’s not just one story told about our city. LSD is an ode to Chicago, a song for the complicated love I have for my city."
Jamila Woods sets off the track with a soulful vibe before turning things over to Chance The Rapper. The "Angels" MC impresses once again with his latest guest verse.
"This here ain't for no Vice doc/This here ain't for no Spike op/But since I was one like a cyclops/I run up some stairs on a bike cop/I shake up some hands on the right block/Block club president, night watch/My niggas was real when the mic dropped/I put 'em in my will like a bike lock/Got family in Gary and STL, I got cousins in Milwaukee/I got family in Detroit and ATL, I got an auntie that steal our weed/We the number one gentrified/Run inside, gimme my land, the new Chi tits perky/Face lift and makeshift spaces/Invest the rest in a number 25 Knicks jersey/Grass is greener in Pasadena or Catalina by the water/Where the overlap between bullet holes and backpacks couldn't be farther/And I'm supposed to father my daughter/She the princess in the dragon's lair/I'm a dragon slayer, I can't fly away/This on hide away, I gotta find a way," Chance raps.
Fans will find "LSD" on Jamila Woods' upcoming album Heavn. The LP will be released on July 11 via Closed Sessions.
