Chance the Rapper has no hit records, has never sold a single album, and five years ago was suspended from Jones College Prep High School for 10 days for marijuana possession. Since denting the music landscape with the unexpected success of his 2013 mixtape Acid Rap, the 23-year-old MC from Chicago has landed guest spots on projects from Kanye West, Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Lil Wayne. He’s your favorite artist’s favorite “have you heard about?” artist.

His rhyme style is refreshingly malleable with a musical knowledge that has him belting out church hymns seconds after double-time rapping about vanquishing the devil. It’s been three years, but Chance has returned with his latest mixtape, Coloring Book, which features contributions from Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Justin Beiber, and 2 Chainz, among others. Its release Thursday on Apple Music and, briefly, DatPiff, has sent Twitter into its usual frenzy.

From DJs to organic burger restaurants, here’s the Twitter chatter surrounding Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book mixtape.
