Chance the Rapper played the first show of his summer tour last night in San Diego. Though much of the setlist consisted of material from his Grammy-winning Coloring Bookhe also dropped in a few treats from Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo, an album he had a heavy hand in helping create. Chance performed his part of “Ultralight Beam” and invited the crowd to join in on “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1”.  Perhaps most excitingly, however, he delivered his original version of “Waves”, the demo of which he shared last summer.

Watch video of “Waves” and “Ultralight Beam” below.

There were plenty of highlights during the Coloring Book material, as well. When Chance brought out “No Problems”, for example, the screen behind him displayed parodies of famous record label logos followed by an image of his three Grammys. It was “PHONY” instead of “SONY,” “A Titanic” instead of “Atlantic,” and “Don’t Join Recordings” instead of “Def Jam Recordings.” There was also the cheeky “Villain Records” parodying “Virgin Records,” but with a bit of a typo.

Check out a clip of the jab at major labels below.
