Upcoming Chicago rapper Chance the Rapper already toured as an opener for Mac Miller this year, and now he’s announced a headlining tour in support of his buzzy mixtape, Acid Rap. The tour, dubbed Chance the Rapper’s Social Experiment, is with fellow Chicagoan/footwork mastermind DJ Rashad and his collaborator DJ Spinn (this must mean Rashad is recovering from his recent car accident). The tour hits NYC on October 29 and 30 at SOB’s. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (9/27) at 10 AM with an artist presale beginning Tuesday (7/24) at 1 PM. All dates are listed, along with the tour flyer, below.

Chance also recently collaborated with James Blake, hopping on a remix of “Life Round Here” from James’ 2013 LP, Overgrown. They’ve also got more collaborations planned. XXL reports:

Like, most worthwhile collaborations, the project grew out of a combination of mutual appreciation and random luck. “I met James Blake at SXSW this year before my tape even dropped,” said Chance, taking a break during his current European tour with Macklemore. “He came to one of my shows and I freaked the fuck out. I’m a huge James Blake fan. I don’t even know if he knew I was a fan.”

After the meeting, the two kept in touch and started working together on a couple of tracks, including some original material. Apparently Chance recorded two versions of the “Life Round Here” remix and the second version will hopefully come out soon.

You can listen to the “Life Round Here” remix along with the list of tour dates and flyer, below…
