Acid Rap, Chance The Rapper
Part of why College Dropout is still so far-reaching in it's impact is because of the range of feelings that it exhibited. Kanye could go from depressed and outraged at racism to happy-go-lucky and upbeat in the course of one verse. That's what Chance the Rapper mastered with Acid Rap—the ability to show his darkest sides and his brightest sides on the same project, fueled by his limitless capacity to be himself. No other artists on this list has so finely studied Kanye's debut blueprint as Chance seems to have.
