In a meeting of Chicago's most innovative minds, Chance the Rapper reports that he and Kanye West are going to begin work on a new seven-track album. The seven-track motif, if you haven't been paying attention, is in honor of Kanye's all-June-long string of album releases from his G.O.O.D. Music imprint by himself, himself and Kid Cudi as Kids See Ghosts, Pusha T, Nas, and, just last week, Teyana Taylor. A creative rebirth if there ever was one!
In a new video interview with Complex, Chance says he is preparing to work with Kanye in July.
"I've been actively working on the project with Childish [aka actor/writer Donald Glover]. I'm going to do a seven-track with Ye," Chance confirms around the 12:30 mark. Regarding Gambino, Chance says: "We've got six songs that are all fire, but I think the album is going to be more than 14 songs." This is, of course, a lot to take all at once, but whatever the final results of Chance x Ye and Chance x Gambino yield, you can be certain that everyone will be talking about it.
