Chance the Rapper Is Working On His Debut Album Right Now!
2016 was Chicago indie recording artist Chance the Rapper‘s most defining moment of his career yet. This year alone, the “No Problems” hit maker has trendsetted everything he touches from mixtapes, to the grammys, to feature films, and lastly in motivating his city to vote. What’s next for the 23-year-old? How about a full length debut album?
“…I think what I’m working on right now is an album…”
While visiting the other side of the pond yesterday, Chance the Rapper sat down with DJ Semtex over at BBC Radio 1Xtra and discussed several related topics in a little under 30-minute interview involving fellow Chicago recording artist Kanye West, Current United States President Barack Obama, and his what he has planned for the follow up release to his soon-to-be grammy nominated mixtape, ‘Coloring Book’.
During the interview, Chance hinted at a debut album in the works; however, not labeling the upcoming body of work an official album but an important consideration of an album. Chance also took the time to reference his heavy involvement in Kanye West’s 2016 release, ‘The Life of Pablo’ and the origin of the album’s track, “Ultralight Beam”. Chance lastly also took time to touch on Kanye West’s current Hospitalized situation.
Although Chance lead a mass of local concert goers to the polls on election day in Chicago, he revealed to Semtex that he knew President-elected Donald Trump was going to win the election.
It was also sadly announced today that Chance has canceled the remaining dates of the European leg of his highly-successful Magnificent Coloring World Tour due to “personal reasons”.
We will have more as the story develops.
