Back in 2003, Monica’s smash single, So Gone became everyone’s anthem. If it came on now, I’m sure many including myself would gladly sing along. “Silly of me…devoted so much time…” Okay, back to the point.
Just like most smash singles, other artist tend to add a few verses of their own to it. Some artist have even managed to have hotter verses than the original ones, but that’s a different story for a different post. Yesterday, Chance The Rapper upload a minute freestyle to Monica’s So Gone single via Twitter where he raps, “I got the baddest chick on the planet…she ain’t mixed but folks be askin’ if she half Hispanic…”.
Chance also let it be known via Twitter that his freestyle was inspired by another fellow Chicago artist, TEEJAY freestyle that use to be played on all Chicago radio stations regularly. Remember, “I want the baddest chick on the planet…since Jay got Beyoncé & Jermaine got Janet…I was heartbroken, I really couldn’t understand it…” That’s part of TEEJAY’s verse added to So Gone. Chance tweeted, “S/o the real MR. Windy City: TEEJAY! I used to skate to this at the rink.”
Of course, Monica & Missy Elliot became aware of Chance’s So Gone freestyle & loved it. They loved it so much that they each shared Chance’s video & Monica even took to Instagram & stated the following: “#SoGoneChallenge @chancetherapper bodied this…Wanna see yours! So be sure to use the #SoGoneChallenge hashtag & I will be sharing the ones I love. @missymisdemeanorelliott created a real classic record for me…Love U always Miss…Can’t wait to see & share the challenges.”
With that being said, if you think you have a hot freestyle that you can added to So Gone, I strongly advice you to do so & hashtag #SoGoneChallenge – you never know what could happen or who may see it.
