Three years ago, Chance the Rapper tweeted, "Kanye likes Acid Rap," then later revealed he was joking, and hadn't spoken to Kanye West yet. Things have clearly progressed a lot since then. This week Chance dropped his anticipated Acid Rap follow-up, Coloring Book, with a feature from 'Ye on the very first track, "All We Got."

In a behind-the-scenes of our recent June/July 2016 cover shoot with Chance and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, Complex News' Nadeska Alexis spoke to the Chicago rapper about working with Kanye on The Life on Pablo, why he decided to drop Surf before another solo project, making history as the first independent artist to perform on Saturday Night Live and his new mixtape Coloring Book.

We also asked him for an update on his friend, the ever-elusive Frank Ocean. Chance reassured us that when Frank disappears, absolutely no one can find him—it's not just the media.
