Chance The Rapper teases upcoming collaboration with Future
In a break from the regular dance music news mill, independent artist and recent Grammy Award-winner Chance The Rapper is wasting no time in building upon his historic victories. In fact, it looks like the Coloring Book emcee has his nose closer to the grindstone than ever.
Chano has new material in the chamber featuring fellow hip-hop forward-thinker Anderson .Paak, and now he’s hyping a new collaboration alongside another rap superstar, Future. In a series of Instagram posts, Chance teases a new track featuring the “Low Life” lyricist’s bars over an emotive piano melody and tightly wound hi-hat rolls.
Chance also recently confirmed that he is now working on his first official album. Though the rapper has previously released three mixtapes and a collaborative collection with Chicago collective The Social Experiment, its worth noting that classification of these as albums is technically inaccurate. And, while all of his projects thus far have been long-play offerings, his first solo full-length record is now officially underway. Chance elaborates thusly:
“My mixtapes have been confused for albums for a long time, so it has to be something different… it might not be physical, it might not be a disc or something, but an album that comes with its own live show.”

Future, however, is rumored to have enough material under the hood for an entire second record, which some rumors claim could be dropping as soon as this week, hot off the heels of a self-titled solo LP that landed last week. What’s more, Future’s self-titled release is an entirely solo affair, lending credibility to the idea that this new Chance The Rapper collaboration could be already pinned down for the Freebandz rapper’s next release…which could be out as soon as Friday.
