Kanye West May Produce Seven-Track Album for Chance The Rapper
It looks like there's a good chance the recent stream of Kanye West-produced LPs isn't stopping any time soon. Today (June 28), Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg revealed that Chance The Rapper is putting out a seven-track album produced by Yeezy himself.
Speaking on the matter during his Complex show, Chance tells Rosenberg he's heading to the studio with Yeezy in July to work on the seven-track album. He also reveals he has a project with Childish Gambino in the works.
Chance will join Pusha-T (Daytona) and Nas (Nasir) as rappers who've had seven-track projects produced by 'Ye. Yeezy also produced Kids See Ghosts, a seven-track joint LP between himself and Kid Cudi.
If you've been keeping score of Chance's career over the last few years, you probably know he's a bit of a Yeezy fan. Being a super-talented Chicago rapper, Chano was always bound to be connected to 'Ye, and in 2016, he helped the mercurial rapper-producer-designer create his seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo. On that project's opening track, "Ultra Light Beam," Chano famously rapped, "I met Kanye West I am never going to fail."
After linking with Yeezy on TLOP, Chano also received a feature and some production from the Windy City legend on his third mixtape, Coloring Book. There's no timeline on when Chance's alleged 'Ye-produced LP will end up being released, but hopefully, if it is happening, it drops soon.
