On this week's episode of Open Late, Peter Rosenberg caught up with Chance the Rapper at CRC studio in Chicago, who opened up about what he's planning on the musical tip. Along with his work with Childish Gambino on their much anticipated collaborative project, Chance revealed he's set to hit the studio with Kanye West in July to do his own seven-track album.
"What's cool is that 'Ye's kind of got me in a mode of understanding just your ability to multitask and work on different things," he said. "Because of his ability to work on multiple projects, I've been actively working on the project with Childish, I'm gonna do a seven-track with 'Ye."
Chance set his progress bar at about "30 percent on everything. At least 30 percent." He also explained that he may not release his next project for sale, which is something he thought about doing and told Complex as much in his 2017 cover story. "I used to be, but now I'm kind of like, I want to get on my mixtape sh*t," he explained.
Kazeem Famuyide and Kathy Iandoli joined the show for a roundtable discussion with Rosenberg about the Kanye West five-album rollout that featured releases from 'Ye, Nas, Pusha-T, Teyana Taylor, and the collaborative project between the Chicago legend and Kid Cudi. They also ranked the projects and critiqued how messy the overall rollout was. Later, they broke down the nominees for song of the summer.
