Last year, Chance the Rapper teamed up with James Blake for the ‘Life Round Here‘ remix. On Tuesday (March 18), the Chicago rhymer dropped an original incomplete verse from their recording session.

“This was the og idea for me and james’ first collaboration,” he explained. “James never liked this [verse].”

On the song, the Chicago native raps an introspective verse while Blake sings in the background.

“Light ain’t been around here in a minute / Darkness been swallowed it up / Chaos been ’round for a minute / Marketed, bottled it up / But wear that fake smile like a cape / Save yourself first,” he spits.

In the meantime, Chance is currently working on his anticipated debut album, ‘Social Experiment.’ The ‘Acid Rap’ artist will soon begin his run of festival dates starting with the 2014 Coachella Music Festival in April.
