Chance the Rapper - Bar for Bar Breakdown

What's good y'all. I'm back with another Bar for Bar Breakdown! This week we analyze Chance the Rapper's song How Great from Coloring Book.

I'll be honest, Coloring Book was a bit underwhelming. Chance also a did quite a bit of impersonating his features. Even with this track I broke down, he was doing a Jay Elec impersonation. I feel like he took a step back lyrically to get more mainstream appeal and spread his new faith.

What did you guys think of the project and who else would you like to see broken down?

Thank you for you kind suggestion... But, this breakdown focuses more on the other technical aspects of the lyrics. Genius doesn't really allow me to detail the rhyme patterns and such.

this is yo hustle and i respect that but this song is 70% gospel and you're managing to stretch that 30% into 15 minutes of content where, when i skipped around, you're absolutely droning on and on

I got you. Is there a way that I can improve my content? Make it shorter? Just hop to the most complex punches and bars? This is a part of my hustle and I want to make these videos the best that I can create. I need the feedback.

shorter

more energetic

your background's boring and the footage isn't too appealing

it's just boring, really -- it needs to pop, be unique, and more consistent, you could hone in on a lot of different elements of a song and bring them together in the end (if you've ever read Shea Serrano's TRYB you'd know what i mean) and sort of present it like a lecture/classroom etc

Thank you so much, bro. I'll work on bringing the presentation up with the limited resources I have. Translating energy into video is really difficult. I'm nearly yelling every line. I'll be sure to highlight more elements of the music as well. I appreciate the feedback.
