Jamila Woods & Chance The Rapper Put On Up For Chicago w/ New Collaboration "LSD"

On July 11th, Jamila Woods will usher out her debut album as a solo artist Heavn. Today she reinforces standout singles “Holy” and “Blk Girl Solder” with the beautiful new cut “LSD,” assisted by fellow Windy City native, Chance The Rapper. Together they dispel skewed conceptions of their beloved city over a slow-burning, rhodes-driven groove, showing us the side of Chicago they fell in love with, which is all sides, really. Media may paint the midwestern city as a hopelessly violent one, but those that know better, like Woods and Chano, will forever sing their city’s praises. Hear Jamila Woods and Chance The Rapper connect once more in the name of their hometown down below, but before you do, be sure to read Jamila’s words on the song and her city.

“When I was a kid, getting on Lake Shore Drive from the south side to go downtown was magical. I lived on the east coast for a few years and people would laugh when I told them we have beaches and a lake we can swim in. I always wanted to write about that. A lot of people get Chicago wrong. I’ve developed this protective feeling about how we’re portrayed, and at the same time I’m acutely aware of the issues we face and the root causes of these issues. It’s important to me that there’s not just one story told about our city. LSD is an ode to Chicago, a song for the complicated love I have for my city.”
