The mix tape got the attention of columnists at Forbes magazine, which featured it in the publication’s Cheap Tunes column.

As a teenager, he frequented YOUmedia, a youth center in Chicago’s downtown Harold Washington Library where he was able to work on his public speaking and get better at telling stories to a larger audience. Bennett released his second mixtape, ‘Acid Rap’ ,on April 30, 2013. It was also nominated for ‘Best Mix tape’ at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards. In August 2013, Bennett performed at the Chicago music festival ‘Lollapalooza’.You can listen to a sample of Chance the Rapper’s track ‘Favorite Song’ in the media player below.
