We have been been prophesying the coming kingdom of Cincinnati hip hop for years. 

Recently, it appears that the WUW? crew may be the Moses of this Nati New Testament and the extraterrestrial duo The Space Invadaz are preparing the path to lyrical salvation.

Chicago Hip Hop and the Art of Painting Your Own Lane | Chance the Rapper - Coloring Book

The WhatUpWally? crew has been debating how to use our words to properly encapsulate this new Chance the Rapper project. However, it seems like a disservice to Chance's courageous use of color to draw beyond the reductionist categories of hip hop, jazz, gospel, and funk to then use these categories to explain his fusion-istic accomplishments. 

Descriptions and categories be damned, Chano is not just rapping in his own lane but has actually been constructing a new tollroad. 

As of yet, Kendrick, Lupe, and Kanye are the only mainstream hip hop artists that have freed themselves from the normal music traffic jam and granted a Chance toll tag. 

Of course, the kids from Chicago - Alex Wiley, G'zus Piece, Tree, Mick Jenkins, and Donnie Trumpet & Vic Mensa (and their lane destroying group Kids These Days) - have been part of this new highway construction team.
