We can finally clear the air of any rumor surrounding a Chance The Rapper verse on James Blake’s “Life Round Here.” A day after Complex magazine revealed the rapper’s cover, fans can feast their ears on this remix of the UK crooner’s track.

Chance compliments the already ambient tune with some harmonies. This is followed by a display of the bubbling wordsmith’s off-kilter lyricism and dexterous flow.

The Acid Rap creator has drawn comparisons to an early Eminem and the reasoning can be heard in lines like, “Why every time I land in London, land of Lincoln all on my mind/I plan on planing it back after playing a packed show in due time.”

Additionally, Chance caught up with the good folks at Myspace for an ill vlog that you can see on the following page. Hear him rhyme on James Blake’s “Life Round Here (Remix)” below.
