Kanye West and Chance the Rapper May Have a G.O.O.D. Friday Collaboration Coming
While Kanye West's relaunch of his G.O.O.D. Friday's series has missed it's deadline for a second week in a row, fans are getting added clarification from Big Boy of Los Angeles radio station Real 92.3. Posing with West and the newly released hand-written Swish tracklist, the radio personality explains that Kanye and Chance the Rapper are in the studio working on what can only be assumed to be this week's belated release.
"Good Friday is running a lil late," Big Boy captioned the photo. "They're creating something from scratch in here. Not only is Chance The Rapper a lyrical beast.....he's also a GREAT photographer. Hellllooooo. #Swish #KanyeWest #HandWrittenTrackList #ChanceTheRapper #ItsComing"
With Swish due in stores on Feb. 11, it is unlikely that West is still recording anything for the album, and that the fruits of the studio session will be out sooner rather than later. Chance himself has been seen in the studio working on what is believed to be the follow-up to his 2013 mixtape Acid Rap.
Prior to Big Boy's photo, West had released two new tracks in accordance with the reimagined G.O.O.D. Friday's series. In 2010, West used the weeks leading up to the release of his fifth studio album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy to offer fans early singles and one-off collaborations. Thus far, West has released "Real Friends" featuring Ty Dolla $ign and "No More Parties in L.A." featuring Kendrick Lamar, both of which appear on West's Swish tracklist.
While album cuts are ripe for fan consumption, part of the G.O.O.D. Friday's fun is seeing what constitutes a throw-away track for West, and the lengths he will go to ensure their demand. A Chicago connection with Chance the Rapper for example will get the people going without tipping any more of his Swish hand away. Stay tuned to see if Kanye drops the Chance collab at some point this week, as the second half of the term G.O.O.D. Friday seems to be waning in importance.
