Chance The Rapper has shared four new songs, having previously denied claims that he’s set to release a new album this week.
Last night, the Chicago star shared ‘Work Out’, ‘Wala Cam’, ‘I Might Need Security’ and ’65th and Ingleside’ on Soundcloud.
The tracks mark a new politicised direction for the rapper as he calls out Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel on ‘I Might Need Security’.
“And Rahm you done/I’m expecting a resignation/and open investigation on all these paid vacations for murderers”.
The very same track sees Chance confirming his venture into media ownership, after it was claimed that he purchased the Chicagoist website.
“I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist bitches outta business”, the star is heard to say.
He later confirmed the purchase in a separate statement.
Elsewhere, ’65th’ sees Chance praising frequent collaborator Donald Glover for kick starting his career.
“All my raps was about suspension/Then one day Donald took me on tour/Young, broke Chano ain’t broke no more.”
It was claimed that this week would see Chance releasing the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Colouring Book’, before he backtracked on the claims.
“Sorry no album this week, def been in the stu tho”, he confirmed.
He’s also working on a new album with Kanye, after Chance revealed that Ye will travel back to his native Windy City for the record – which he describes as “very personal”.
