Chance The Rapper has revealed plans to move in with James Blake and begin working on music together.

The rapper, who appears on the cover of this week's NME, will move into a new home in Los Angeles with Mercury Prize winner Blake later this year (2014). The pair have previously collaborated on a remix of Blake's song 'Life Round Here'.

Speaking in this week's issue, which is on newsstands or available digitally now, Chance states: "I've never lived anywhere other than this house, the one I grew up in in Chicago. It will probably be like being on vacation for the first couple of months. Then I'll start figuring out what kind of music I'll be making."

He continues: "We're probably going to make a bunch of shit every day. I don't know what we're going to do with it. We might give some shit to other artists. We're getting a compound so we figure we might invite people round to the crib and make some music in the house, then kick them out and bring in some new people."
