Fresh off the success of his “Coloring Book” mixtape, Chance The Rapper revealed exciting news that could likely send fans into a frenzy.
Chance The Rapper spoke about his upcoming collaboration with Kanye West on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe, NME reported. Chance also hinted that the project’s title is called “Good Ass Job.” However, the surprise didn’t end there as Chance also shared never before heard demos of West’s songs. Kanye West and Chance The Rapper have worked together in the past to support each other’s projects. “Good Ass Job” would be an opportunity for the two artists to take their “growing creative relationship” a step further.
“The making of my album and the making of his album were very separate but very connected, as we had a lot of discussions together. The main thing we want to connect on is this project called ‘Good Ass Job’ – that’s a thing that we talked about a long time ago, and I think everything that we’ve been working on has become a part of it,” Chance revealed. The rapper also shared his experience on what it’s like to work with West, Billboard cited an excerpt from his Beats 1 interview.
“He records drums in a way I’ve never seen before he does everything live off the MPC. As it plays now the drums aren’t mixed separately, all the kicks all the hi-hat are the same level. He does it literally in one take from top to bottom, he just stands there and goes through it and plays all the drums that you hear on the track as you hear now. Less than five seconds after he does that one take through he goes through and freestyles over it,” Chance The Rapper described.
Indeed, the bond between the two artists is “one of the most touching and creatively exciting friendships in hip-hop,” The Fader wrote. The publication cited the exchange of tweets between the two Chicago natives. West’s recent tweet of praise for his fellow Chicagoan on his mixtape earned a “sweet” response from Chance The Rapper, the publication described. Chance portrayed West and his music as “more of a companion than a simple idol,” the publication wrote.
