Chance The Rapper featuring James Blake – Save Yourself First (Original Collaboration)

We're big fans of James Blake and Chance The Rapper's original collaborative track from 2013, "Life Round Here," granting it a 3rd place spot on our list of Top 10 songs from last year, but it turns out that the duo had an original version of their collaboration in mind and it was titled "Save Yourself First." Revealed today via Chance the Rapper's Twitter account, "Save Yourself First" maintains a similar vibe to the developed and officially released "Life Around Here" track, but Chance notes on the SoundCloud caption that "James never liked this verse" which is perhaps why it didn't make the cut.

this was the og idea for me and james' first collaboration … - @chancetherapper
