Chance The Rapper Reveals Kanye West Is Producing A 7-Song Album For Him

Remember when Kanye West once rapped, ”doing five beats a day for three summers” and it felt like hyperbole? Well, he’s produced 35 songs for himself, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor in the span of a month, and now Chance the Rapper has revealed that West might also be producing an entire album for him.

“I’m in dry erase board mode, so I’m organizing and kind of trying to structure. But what’s cool is Ye’s kind of got me in a mode of understanding just your ability to multi-task and work on different things. He’s always been on that,” Chance said on the season finale of Open Late with Peter Rosenberg. “Because of his ability to work on multiple projects, I’ve been actively working on the project with Childish [Gambino]. I’m going to do a 7-track [album] with Ye.”

The rumored Chance/Childish joint project has been discussed in some capacity for the past six years, and now the Chicago rapper has divulged just how close to completion it actually is.

“I’m 30 percent on everything that I’m working on, at least 30 percent,” he continued. “Supposed to be working on [the Kanye album] in July. So I don’t know. … 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.”

If Chance can pull off both a Kanye-produced album and a collaborative project with Childish Gambino in 2018, he might deserve the MVP.

Suge Knight Says Dre Got Too Much Credit For Producing Doggystyle

Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle not only solidified Snoop as a bona fide star, but helped to cement Dr. Dre as hip-hop’s most celebrated producer. According to Death Row co-founder Suge Knight, all of the musical credit shouldn’t go entirely to Dr. Dre. “[It] was was pretty much luck. Everybody thought [Dr. Dre] would be doing the records, but Daz pretty much did the whole album,” Suge told RollingStone.com in an interview that was published on Monday.
