Chance the Rapper (born Chancelor Bennett) may have seen his name penciled in history books thanks to his Grammy-winning debut album, 2016’s ‘Coloring Book,’ but thanks to reports from The Chicago Tribune his fans were under the impression the emcee was ready for round 2.
Ahead of a reported joint release with Kanye West (as we mentioned here), Bennett discussed with the publication that his follow-up was set for a release ‘just in time for the Special Olympics’ – an event scheduled for today (July 17). Taking to Twitter, the ‘Tribune’ got fans excited by reporting:
When pressured for details about the project, Chance gave a disheartening update:
Chance fans needn’t fret, however. He’s still co-headlining the event’s 50th anniversary celebration with R&B vet Usher.
