It’s been two years since Chance the Rapper dropped his phenomenal, star studded album Coloring Book, and fans have been eagerly awaiting its follow-up ever since. Now, after far too long of a silence on the music front, Chance the Rapper has finally given fans an update as to what’s about to happen in the young Chicago MC’s life.
Chance stopped by Open Late with Peter Rosenberg, and revealed not only that he is making new music, but that his next project will be produced by none other than Kanye West. Chance has been a longtime admirer of West, understandably, as he put Chicago’s rap game back on the map with iconic album The College Dropout.
According to Chance, the album will (unsurprisingly) contain seven tracks, keeping in the spirit of West’s latest rollout of albums. Production on the album will begin next month, and considering Kanye’s recent, remarkable pace, we could be looking at a new G.O.O.D Music-produced Chance the Rapper album before the end of the Summer!
This news, in itself, is huge. But that’s not everything Chance revealed in his interview with Peter Rosenberg. Do you remember that long-rumored Chance/Childish Gambino collab album? According to Chance, it exists! Speaking about the Gambino collab, Chance revealed, “We’ve got six songs that are all fire, but I think the album is going to be more than 14 songs.”
Previously, the two rappers have alluded to and skirted around the existence of their highly anticipated collab, Gambino doing so well to dissuade excitement that when asked about it, he could only say that it would “probably happen”. But we know the two keep up with each other. Just last month, Gambino made a cameo at Chance’s Open Mike Chicago event, where he performed his new, scathing single “This Is America“.
