At the present time, Chance the Rapper and Kanye West are pretty much in polar opposite positions. While the former continues to rack in wins (performing at The White House, SNL appearances, GRAMMY nominations), the latter is posted up in a hospital (or not) dealing with his own demons.
Since another collaboration between the two doesn’t seem likely anytime soon, DJ Critical Hype and DJ Clyde have brought it upon themselves to make it happen — by way of a new blend-tape that features Chance vocals over Kanye production.
Arriving at 23 tracks, Chance the Dropout features mash-ups of “You Song” with Lil Wayne over “Say You Will,” “The Writer” over “Jesus Walks,” Chance’s verse on “Ultralight Beam” over Dilated People’s “This Way,” and a bunch of other twists and turns.
