When it comes to Chance The Rapper, he can't be bothered by what critics say or doesn't care if you like his style.

Chance's Coloring Book was a highly hyped project from a rapper who is all about the music. We have to say, Coloring Book was well worth the wait.

Coloring Book is completed in a style that only Chance could pull off. The combination of gospel and choir samples mixed with level-minded and carefully thought out lyrics pulls the entire mixtape together beautifully.

As for the list of collaborators? Well it is enormous.

The list of collaborators include, Kanye West, Chicago Children's Choir, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Jeremih, Francis, The Light, Young Thug, Lil Yachty, Saba, Justin Bieber, Towkio, Knox Fortune, Jay Electronica,his cousin Nicole, T-Pain, Kirk Franklin, Eryn Allen Kane, Noname and Future.

The music on this album speaks for itself it the brightest ways possible. It's just really good feel good music with religious undertones that will inspire you to be more in tune with yourself. It teaches you to be free from outside influences and most importantly never to change who you are for anyone or any amount of money.

Listeners will also appreciate the "D.R.A.M. Sings Special" track which delivers a positive message.

Highlights on Coloring Book would of course be "All We Got" featuring Kanye West and the Chicago Children's Choir, "Blessings," "Mixtape" featuring Young Thug and Lil Yachty, "Juke Jam" featuring Justin Bieber and Towkio and "How Great" featuring Jay Electronica and Chance's cousin Nicole.

The mixtape is quite fulfilling to a listener and thanks to a star-studded lineup, stellar production and positive vibes and messages, Coloring Book is just what we were looking for from Chance The Rapper.
