2013 was a huge year for rap newcomer Chance the Rapper. The Chicago native released a critically acclaimed mixtape Acid Rap, in the spring of last year, and all eyes have been on him ever since. The Source Magazine has now revealed Chance as their 2014 “Rookie of the Year”.
Chance is another example of how the model for today’s music industry has significantly changed. He has already toured with Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar, and has been featured on a song with Justin Bieber.. and is still an INDEPENDENT artist.

The issue is scheduled to hit shelves on January 7th.
Congratulations to Chance and his team, and we are looking forward to seeing more in 2014.
