Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

How is this Chance's first album release? Why weren't Acid Rap and Coloring Book considered albums?

-Confused Fan

A:

Dear Fan,

It's because Chance the Rapper released them as mix tapes. According to Wikipedia he did this because he didn't want to sign with a record label and would rather release free music and collaborate with whoever he wanted do.

Peace,

Tipperary
