Watch Chance The Rapper tease his debut album

Chicago rapper released mixtape 'Coloring Book' back in May

Chance The Rapper has confirmed that he is working on his debut album release.

The Chicago artist released his mixtape ‘Coloring Book’ in May. It is one of NME’s top 50 releases of the year.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1Xtra yesterday, Chance has confirmed that he is working on his first proper album.


When asked what is next for him, Chance told DJ Semtex: “I’ll probably put out an album. I don’t know exactly the format every time when I’m making something, but a lot of times I have an idea. I think what I’m working on now is an album.”

The full interview can be viewed below.

The news comes in the same week that Chance cancelled his European tour dates, and extended a prayer to recently hospitalised Kanye West.

“I want to extend a very special prayer to my big brother, Kanye West,” Chance said. “I know there’s a lot of weird folks out there, but you already know that I’m a hundred grand. I want to just extend this prayer and extend this love from all the way in Britain. We might come home early to come see this. Happy Thanksgiving.”

Chance also covered Drake’s ‘Feel No Ways’ for Radio 1’s Live Lounge.
