It looks like Chance the Rapper and Kanye West are getting ready to work on their upcoming project. During a interview on Windy City LIVE Wednesday, Chano revealed some minor updates on the tape, saying Kanye is coming to Chicago this month to work on it.
“Working under him or working with him on his projects is crazy, but him telling me he wants to produce my album and come to Chicago and work with me,” Chance says to the crowd’s ovation. “This month we’re working in Chicago.” When the host asked if Kanye even comes to Chicago anymore, Chance said he does but “doesn’t make a big deal out it.”
Speaking further about the upcoming project, Chance says this will be a “very very personal” body work, before going to talk about his proposal to his fiancee Kirsten Corley. In fact, Chance says the news his engagement came his friends’ IG pages, and that he didn’t technically want it that way. He also added that the news broke online before he could even make a toast at the BBQ.
“When I got proposed me and my girl never got a chance to have a quiet moment or have any real discussion on how we wanted to announce it to the world or if we would announce it to the world. How much we wanted the world to be in this, but because how much accessibility publications have to my life through my friends Instagram and stuff our stuff was out there immediately. Before I could even get up and make a toast it was already up on TheShadeRoom and everything.”
