Appearing on the latest The Joe Budden Podcast, Chance shared his thoughts on what motivates the recent actions of West.
Trying to make sense of Kanye’s behaviour, Chance states:
“I think Kanye has said it before, but I think he thinks like for every move, at least for the past few albums, he thinks about himself like 300 years in the future and how people will read things, and [he] figures himself as trying to create a bigger blip on the long timeline where a lot of other people will be stuck in like a very small space of like where their art reaches or where their thoughts reach after they’ve died,”
“I think he does a lot of stuff for the attention of the masses, to get that stuff documented and made into history. But I think also a lot of times, the attention that he may be seeking is at the immediate detriment of some people who may need that attention more.”
Among other things, Chance also touched on his Good Ass Job album with Kanye. Last month, Yeezy announced the two Chicago artists were in the process of working on the album. However Chance revealed that album is nowhere near completion.
Despite little progress with the previous collaboration, Chance did announce that he’s “actively working” on something with Childish Gambino.
