Spanning 16 tracks, Surf is not a solo release, but rather a group project with The Social Experiment focusing on the work of trumpet player Nico “Donnie Trumpet” Segal. The album also includes several guest contributors, including Erykah Badu, Janelle Monáe, Raury, J. Cole, Big Sean, Busta Rhymes, and more.
Whether or not it’s therefore considered a true follow-up to 2013’s Acid Rap is practically irrelevant, as Chance has released enough singles and one-offs in the interim to make a whole other album. That said, Chance is working on a “solo” effort, as well, with reported collaborators said to include Frank Ocean, André 3000, and J. Cole.
