Last night was a surprisingly good night for music releases. Supa Bwe dropped his Fool Wit It freestyle that featured Chicago's very own Chance the Rapper. While supa bwe is more known for his darker, rock star persona his newest freestyle focuses more on clever analogies and wordplay. Chance and Supa go bar for bar, and craft an incredible song that can make anyone feel good. The animation by Abel Gray, does an excellent job of bringing the track to life. Check out the video below.
