Chicago’s own Chance The Rapper recently sat down with Hot 97 while out in New York. This interview was quite interesting to me for several reasons. One being, it’s great seeing music artists from Chicago being interviewed on major platform such as Hot 97.
The questions that Ebro asked Chance were genuine & well put together. Of course, it was moments were everyone joked & laughed – mainly when discussing marijuana, there were also moments I just said “awwed” such as when Chance discuss his daughter. Chance explained when he hasn’t taken to social media to display his daughter & how having her feels like the beginning of his life – I just aww once again.
Chance talked about being his reasons for not signing to a major label & his future plans in the music industry. It makes perfect sense to me why Chance hasn’t signed, he has already worked & built relationships with legends in the music industry. He’s working on a project with Stephen Colbert – as an unsigned artist. The only reason for Chance to sign would be for a check & that’s not what he’s about at all – 8 million (that’s an insider).
What I found fascinating about Chance is that he hasn’t released an official album yet. He has only 2 mixtapes under his belt. Yeah, Chance has a long way to go but he’s definitely on the right track. Another thing that was fascinating is how much Chance is involved with bettering Chicago & giving back. He’s not all talk & “bragging” about what he does – he just do it. I respect that.
There’s was a lot more that Hot 97 managed to talk about with Chance including his intake on the Black Lives Matter movement but you’ll have to watch the entire interview to find out everything.
