There’s no secret Chance The Rapper has a close admiration and artistic relationship with his fellow Chi-Town brethren Kanye West. In a recent conversation with Complex for his June/July cover story, the 23-year-old rapper spoke highly on ‘Ye when asked whether artists should publicly boast about their accomplishments.
"There’s not really a responsibility to tell people of your accomplishments, but I think in Kanye’s situation…it’s Kanye West," Chance explains. "If I was the greatest artist of this generation, and the few past generations, and a few generations going forward, I’d probably say it all the time, especially if I was black and people didn’t really like me. I’d be like, 'Let me remind you all the fucking time.'"
Chance recently contributed to Kanye’s The Life Of Pablo album-opener “Ultralight Beam,” as well co-wrote on four other songs. Chance is also working towards building his own empire with the impending release of Chance 3, following his acclaimed Acid Rap and Surf.
