We discovered Chancio a few months ago thanks to “Zara”, a beautiful addiction. The rapper is back for our greatest delight with “Complicated”.
The track is by far one of the best rap bangers of the year.
Musically, the backing music has an ambient, almost analog quality, with subtle tape noise and organic sounding synths cultivating an aesthetic atmosphere. It’s all very dreamlike and ethereal. Really though, it’s Chancio’ vocals that carry the song. He has an excellent voice and can hit some impressive notes.
I mean this guy has clearly had some training and is really a phenomenal rapper. I realize it’s incredibly difficult to stand out and gain traction in a crowded genre like this, but this song has the means to do just that. It’s a very strong release.
This is honestly just perfect, press play now:
