In June, it was announced that Kanye might be helping Chance the Rapper produce an album, and it seems that day has come. Rumour has it this project will be following the same seven-track format as his five Ye-produced albums; 'Kids See Ghosts' with Kid Cudi, 'Ye' from Yeezy, Teyana Taylor's 'K.T.S.E', Nas' 'Nasir' and Pusha T's 'Daytona'.
Fox 32 caught Kaye out on the street in Chicago and when asked why he was here, he said: "I came out here with Chance to work on his album and I've just been hanging out with my friends. I love this city and I’mma be here a lot more. It's a super inspiring place that made me who I am and I believe there's some work that I could contribute to."
Chance spoke about this collab to Complex, saying: "I'm gonna do a seven-track with 'Ye.' Kanye's my favourite rapper that I followed, you know, without knowing for a long time, and Donald Glover's the first rapper that ever was like, you know, 'Come on tour with me, I like your shit that no one's ever heard of . . . I want you to come out on the road with me.'"
To Windy City Live in July, Chance also said that "Working under [Kanye], working with him on his albums is crazy, but having him tell me that he wants to produce my album and come to Chicago is like . . . This month, we're working in Chicago."
