Chance the Rapper has frequently drawn comparisons to fellow Chicago MC Kanye West for his ambitious productions and brutally honest lyricism. With Chance’s meteoric rise over the last 12 months, it’s hard to believe the two rappers have yet to formally meet. That changed last night, however, when they met backstage at Made in America Los Angeles.
“Anyone who knows me knows how big of a moment this was for me,” Chance wrote of their meeting. “I’ve been his biggest fan since 04 and I’m pretty sure I’m still his #1 fan.”
Maybe their meeting will spur on an actual collaboration, perhaps on Kanye’s as-yet-unannounced seventh solo LP.
