On the latest episode of Open Late, Peter Rosenberg caught up with Chance The Rapper in Chicago to sit down for an exclusive interview and discuss what he has on the way. Not only did Chano reveal that he’s still working on his joint project with Childish Gambino, but the Chicago rapper also confirmed that he’s about to work on a 7-song EP with Kanye West starting next month as well.
“What’s cool is that ‘Ye’s kind of got me in a mode of understanding just your ability to multitask and work on different things,” he said. “Because of his ability to work on multiple projects, I’ve been actively working on the project with Childish, I’m gonna do a seven-track with ‘Ye.”
Chance then went on to talk about the progress of the projects, saying he’s about “30 percent on everything. At least 30 percent.” When asked about the Kanye project, Chance said the two are about to start working in July.
“Im supposed to be working on in July,” Chance tells Rosenberg, before further talking about his tape with Donald Glover. “We got 6 songs that are fire, but I think the album will be more than like 14 songs. I think it’s going to be a full thing,” he said about his project with Gambino.
