Chance The Rapper's 2013 Mixtape Is Now His Highest-Charting Album

Take it back to 2013.

The Chance The Rapper nostalgia machine is strong. To tease his upcoming "debut album," the Chicago MC re-released his first two mixtapes, 10 Day and Acid Rap, onto DSPs to a hoard of eager fans and impressive streaming numbers.

Per Chart Data, Acid Rap has now become Chance's highest charting project, beating out his 2016 GRAMMY-winning Coloring Book and locking in a No. 5 spot in its opening week. 

The album also beat out Freddie Gibbs' and Madlib's highly-anticipated sophomore album, Bandana, reminding us all that while social media loves to call for the support of "real hip-hop," when it comes time to whip out those wallets, battle cries tend to fall on deaf ears.
