Chance the Rapper has announced the release of four new songs via social media.

‘I Might Need Security’, ‘Work Out’, ‘Wala Cam [feat. Supa Bwe & Forever Band]’ and ’65th & Ingleside’  are available to listen to on the 25-year-old artist’s website and SoundCloud.

The release of the tracks comes after Chance claimed he planning to drop a new album by the end of the week, only to go back on his claim, writing: “Sorry no album this week, def been in the stu tho.”

On ‘I Might Need Security’ he calls out Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. “And Rahm you done/I’m expecting a resignation/and open investigation on all these paid vacations for murderers.”

On ’65th’, he references his collaborator Donald Glover: “All my raps was about suspension/Then one day Donald took me on tour/Young, broke Chano ain’t broke no more.” And on the same track, he also confirms that he has purchased a local new in his native city “I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist bitches outta business.”

The lyrics about Chicagoist follow a statement released earlier in the week, in it Chance said: “I’m extremely excited to be continuing the work of the Chicagoist, an integral local platform for Chicago news, events and entertainment.

“WNYC’s commitment to finding homes for the -ist brands, including Chicagoist, was an essential part of continuing the legacy and integrity of the site. I look forward to re-launching it and bringing the people of Chicago an independent media outlet focused on amplifying diverse voices and content.”
