As the text from the opening of the Yours Truly x adidas originals-presented video reads:
04.07.2013, Nosaj Thing and Chance The Rapper met at Ironworx Studios in LA to write and record a new song – from scratch.
“Paranoia” is a hidden track on Acid Rap, and for the first couple days after the release, it was commonly referred to as simply, “the second half of Pusha Man.” The song is a beautiful work of art and is undoubtedly my favorite of the year to date. Chance is living up to and surpassing the potential I knew he had when I listened to #10Day for the first time over a year ago, and “Paranoia” is perhaps the single best example.
This video gives some great insight into the songmaking process and provides depth to something we already knew was so much deeper than just music.
