Source Magazine Names Chance the Rapper "Rookie of the Year"
It’s the last day of the year, and what better way to close the year than reveal The Source Magazine’s Rookie of the Year cover. To cap off an eventful 2013 we welcome Chicago native Chance The Rapper to Rookie of the Year cover. With Acid Rap—his free album released in April—so high in demand it charted on Billboard, Chance The Rapper put himself on the cusp of stardom in 2013 touring with the likes of Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar. His witty flow, playful ad-libs and willingness to rap about raw emotion and real events made Chance The Rapper not only everyone’s new favorite new school member, but his ascent was indicative of a very bright future not only for Chicago, but the entire genre.
