The list of recent Kanye West collaborators is long and, it appears, growing, as Chance the Rapper reveals he has a joint project with Ye in the works.
In an interview for Complex, the Chicago rapper said he would be making a seven-track album with West; while he did not share a projected release date, he said he expected to work on it in July.
Chance the Rapper will join several artists to recently collaborate with West, including Pusha-T and Teyana Taylor, who have both dropped albums produced by West (“Daytona” and “Keep That Same Energy” aka “K.T.S.E.” respectively), as well as Nas (“Nasir”), and Kid Cudi, who together with West just released the joint album “Kids See Ghosts.”
It seems the Chance the Rapper album will follow West’s new favorite format: three of the albums mentioned above likewise consist of only seven tracks (“K.T.S.E.” has eight), as does Kanye West’s own new solo album, “Ye.”
During his interview, the rapper also said he has been “actively working” on his collaborative project with Childish Gambino, adding, “We got six songs that are all fire. But I think the album’s going to be more than 14 songs. I think it’s going to be a full thing.”
