Chance The Rapper BBC Interview

Chance The Rapper Talks Working With J. Cole, Wyclef, and More

Besides being “very very lonely,” Chance The Rapper is very very connected. The Chi-Town rapper has been sharing creative waves with the likes of J.Cole, Jessie Ware, James Blake, and Wyclef in the studio recently. According to his BBC interview with DJ Semtex, it sounds like the greatest learning experience ever.

“I’m soaking in their energy. These are seasoned, awesome, eclectic artists who know a lot that I don’t know. Just working with them and getting to see their process and getting to share ideas is making me a lot better.”

Aside from feasting on musical life forces, Chance talks about how he ended up working with pop star Justin Bieber on “Confident” and taking a break from touring, saying that after Lollapalooza he’ll “probably take a break from doing live shows actually for awhile.”

Don’t worry. Chance isn’t disappearing for good. You can catch his live stream performance from Lollapalooza on August 3. In the meantime check out his trailer for “I’m Very Very Lonely” in the player above and listen to the full interview with BBC radio below:
