Hear Chance The Rapper Cover Drake, Pray For Kanye On BBC Radio 1Xtra
Chance The Rapper appeared on BBC Radio 1Xtra this morning to promote his show in London tonight, and as The Fader points out, it was an eventful visit. Chance and the Social Experiment performed two songs — a thundering rendition of Coloring Book opener “All We Got” and a cover of Drake’s Views highlight “Feel No Ways” — and prayed on air for his friend and close collaborator Kanye West, who is currently hospitalized on psychiatric hold. The Drake cover is notable because Drake and Chance seem to represent different poles of the popular hip-hop spectrum.
You can hear the session here beginning at the 2:16 mark. “All We Got” comes in around 2:18, the Kanye discussion happens around 2:29, and the “Feel No Ways” cover goes down at 2:31.
UPDATE: You can hear Chance’s prayer for Kanye below.
