Chance the Rapper took part in a Reddit AMA this past weekend, shedding light on a number of things, including collaborations, the new mixtape Coloring Book, recording with Jay Electronica, as well as plans for an upcoming global tour. Cutting to the chase, here's a few revelations from Lil Chano's e-chat on the HipHopHeads subreddit with fans:
Plans For Tour
Working With Jay Electronica On "How Great," Chance's Favorite Song
"The setup, the children’s choir, JAY!!!!! My grandmother passed away a few weeks before we recorded and my cousin Nicole sang “How Great Is Our God” and it crushed me, a week later I had her come to the studio. Recorded her and Francis did his harmonizer thing. It’s so close to my heart."
Possibility Of J. Cole Collab
"Does it count if he produces it?"
On Coloring Book's Tracklist Change ""Finish Line" at one point was the intro, with the same order. “Smoke Break” was last. “Entree” was third."
On "Grown Ass Kid" Missing The Coloring Book Cut Due To Sample Issues
""Grown Ass Kid" had a sample clearance issue, bummed it leaked. Bummed it didnt get cleared it woul’dve been track 11. “Blessings” are kind of one thing on the album, they both are meant to prepare you for your day and your blessing."
On Whether Or Not That Childish Gambino Collab Album Still Exists
On Vic Mensa's Traffic Album
"Traffic is his best work to date, I hope it drops soon but not before I get another verse on that bitch."
