Published Nov 19, 2015Chicago rapper Taylor Bennett is Chance the Rapper's brother, and he recruited his famous sibling for the new track "Broad Shoulders."
This comes from Bennett's album, which is also called Broad Shoulders. It taps into Chance's sensitive side, as the brothers deliver sweet rhymes over a mellow beat with tinkling piano. They have a distinctly similar delivery, which adds to the sense of familial intimacy.
Bennett told Rolling Stone, "My thing with my brother is that he always wanted me to work on myself and create my own name before we got to work together. He always knew that I was great enough to get a fanbase and sell out shows and get a lot of views. It's a very meaningful song to our family and our next generation. Chance is now a father, and in the third verse, I speak about my niece — his daughter — so it's a really emotional and compassionate song."
Bennett will reportedly make an appearance on Chance's next solo album. For now, hear "Broad Shoulders" below.
It's not entirely clear when the rest of Broad Shoulders will come out.
