'The Writer' is a pre-10 Day and pre-Acid Rap track, and it finds Chance the Rapper deep in that mind-set. He looks to the future on its verses, frustrated by his own unrealised potential and oversized dreams, it's almost like he knew where he was going.

The unearthed track from 2012 is a rare chance to hear a young artist honing his craft on simultaneously small and grand stage. The incredible backing track was designed by Chicago based production outfit THEMpeople, and their work is absolutely stellar. You owe it to yourself to listen to that intro on a good pair of headphones.
