Remember when Kanye West once rapped, "doing five beats a day for three summers" and it felt like hyperbole? Well, he's produced 35 songs for himself, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor in the span of a month, and now Chance the Rapper has revealed that West might also be producing an entire album for him.
"I'm in dry erase board mode, so I'm organizing and kind of trying to structure. But what's cool is Ye's kind of got me in a mode of understanding just your ability to multi-task and work on different things. He's always been on that," Chance said on the season finale of Open Late with Peter Rosenberg. "Because of his ability to work on multiple projects, I've been actively working on the project with Childish [Gambino]. I'm going to do a 7-track [album] with Ye."
The rumored Chance/Childish joint project has been discussed in some capacity for the past six years, and now the Chicago rapper has divulged just how close to completion it actually is.
"I'm 30 percent on everything that I'm working on, at least 30 percent," he continued. "Supposed to be working on [the Kanye album] in July. So I don't know. ... We got six songs that are all fire, but I think the album’s going to be more than 14 songs. I think it’s going to be a full thing."
If Chance can pull off both a Kanye-produced album and a collaborative project with Childish Gambino in 2018, he might deserve the MVP.
