Chance The Rapper is one of my favourite people, says Kanye West
Kanye West said Chance The Rapper is one of his favourite people as he thanked him for letting him work on his mixtape Coloring Book.
Kanye, who features alongside the Chicago Children's Choir on the first track All We Got, also called Coloring Book a "masterpiece".
The love between fellow Chicago rappers Chance and Kanye is no secret. Chance, who features heavily on Kanye's The Life Of Pablo (TLOP), also describes the hip hop king as a blessing in the Coloring Book track Blessings (Reprise).
"I'm pre-currency post-language, anti-label," he says. "Pro-famous, I'm Broadway Joe Namath/Kanye's best prodigy/He ain't signed me but he proud of me."
Chance also called Kanye "the greatest artist of our generation" in a recent Complex interview.
Kanye even let Chance unofficially announce Chance 3 on TLOP. In the second verse of Ultralight Beam, we hear from Chance.
"I met Kanye West, I'm never going to fail," says Chance. "He said let's do a good ass job with Chance three/I hear you gotta sell it to snatch the Grammy/Let's make it so free and the bars so hard/That there ain't one gosh darn part you can't tweet."
Chance, aka, Chancelor Bennett, is also credited on TLOP tracks Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1, Famous, Feedback and Waves.
