Chicago singer Jamila Woods has been gaining a lot of traction since assisting Macklemore on his conversation-starting record, ‘White Privilege II’. This time she has recruited Chicago’s own, Chance The Rapper, for her new Windy City themed track, ‘LSD’, referring to Chicago famous lakeside highway, Lake Shore Drive. Woods couldn’t have picked a better feature for this one, as Chance compliments Jamila Woods’ beautiful OddCouple produced tribute to Chi-town.
The new release is in anticipation of Woods’ forthcoming debut project, HEAVN. You won’t have to wait too much longer for this one either, as HEAVN is set to release this month, on July 11th, and features Chance The Rapper, Saba, Donnie Trumpet and production from Peter Cottontale, oddCouple and more.
