Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper performs at Club Nokia. (Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times / December 19, 2013)

Can someone in Chancelor Bennett's immediate vicinity give him a big-ass hug?

On this track, Chance the Rapper sounds like a dude who just broke up with every friend and lover he's ever had. He sings (yes, sings) wistfully about being totally alone and not knowing what to watch while eating cold pizza and sriracha. I haven't seen a rapper this talented rap so transparently about participating in mundane activities since that one time Jay Z told us he likes apple pies from McDonalds.

Like most Chance the Rapper songs, it's a must-listen.

Listen to "I Am Very Very Lonely" below.
