DJ Wynn celebrates Birthday Week at BTR by taking lessons from Mavis Staples, manifesting with Dan Deacon, and indulging in simple pleasures with Action Bronson.
This week we review Chance the Rapper's second LP, Acid Rap, self-released on April 30th. The 20-year-old, who took acid while writing the LP, touches upon a variety of musical genres, trap, juke, gospel, soul, ragtime, and more, an impressive effort for such a young mc. The album will arguably sustain the year, having recieved a flood of positive criticism already. I liked this album, I made this show long, my bad (xo Margaret.)
On today's show, a "best of 2012" album list that's sure to throw you for a loop. Plus, a look back at one of the biggest stories of the year.
