Chance the Rapper - "Same Drugs"

Sometimes, relationships are held together by the flimsiest of reasons -- a shared love of a sports team, interest in the same hobby. But what happens if the individuals stop being into the same things? Chance's "Same Drugs" takes that idea in a great direction, chronicling a romance that's ended, in part, because he and his girl aren't doing the same drugs anymore. That's a funny conceit -- but look how poignant he makes it, too.
