Frank Ocean And André 3000 Will Appear On Chance The Rapper’s Debut Album

Since the release of his breakout 2013 mixtape Acid Rap, Chance The Rapper has become something of a low-key star, and he’s also become a conundrum, an artist who doesn’t seem especially interested in pushing his career to new heights. Since Acid Rap, he’s busied himself throwing shards of new songs onto the internet without much sense of cohesion, and right now he’s working on Surf, the debut full-length from his backing band Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment. According to a new GQ profile, though, Chance does have an official debut album in the works, and it’s set to feature two of his fellow conundrums, Frank Ocean and André 3000. Those guys, along with J. Cole, are reportedly expected to appear on the “yet to be named” album. These guys don’t make songs with just anyone, so that’s quite a vote of confidence for Chance. If it ever comes out then, we should get to hear some fascinating jams. (There’s also a new FADER profile on Chance that says practically nothing about this mysterious debut album, but you should probably read that one, too.)
