Chance The Rapper confirms Kanye West-produced album and joint Childish Gambino project underway
Chance The Rapper fans will be kissing the sky after the “Good Ass Job” rhymer’s revealing interview with Peter Rosenberg via Complex‘s ‘Open Late.’ Chance discussed a number of topics across the interview, though the conversation largely centered around music, and Chance didn’t spare any details in dishing on his upcoming plans. Chance doubled down on huge confirmations, revealing plans to deliver a seven-track Kanye West-produced LP that’s slated for studio time in July, along with an exciting update on his long-mythologized joint project with Childish Gambino, which is shaping up to be quite the endeavor.
“We got six songs that are all fire. But I think the album’s gonna be more than 14 songs. I think it’s gonna be a full thing.”
Chance waxes poetic on his newfound, Kanye-taught ability to multitask creatively, the influential role Dave Chappelle plays in his life, Michael Jackson, Lil Wayne, and the early mentoring Donald Glover gave him as his career began to bud. On the current state of affairs in the rap world, Chano expresses his hesitation with diss rapping, though he mentions he “has hella music” sheepishly wishing some of it was out. Despite Chance not having anything currently dominating the airwaves, it sounds like that’s all about to change. Watch Chance The Rapper’s full interview with Peter Rosenberg above.
