In 2013, Noname struck a chord with a large national audience thanks to an enamoring verse spat on Chance the Rapper’s now iconic mixtape, Acid Rap. What has she been doing for the past 3 years? It’s not for me to speculate, though I imagine she’s been working. What I feel is important to tell you right now is that Noname’s debut mixtape is out. Beyond that I would rather not mince words, we have waited so long for this beautiful and emotional labor of love. It’s so encouraging to see people from your city realizing their dreams and it is even more enlivening to see them collaborate together, Shoutout to theMind, Smino, Ravyn Lenae, Eryn Allen Kane, Joseph Chilliams, Saba and the whole host of local talent that Noname included on her tape.
