Chance the Rapper was a guest on “The Cruz Show” on Los Angeles’ Power 106 FM recently. During his appearance, he discussed his long-rumored project with Kanye West, Good Ass Job, an album he teased during a May interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1. Chance first gave an update on the record’s status. He said, “It’s definitely far from done. It’s something that gets brought up in conversation every once in a while.”
“The Good Ass Job, that’s something that’s just been a dream for me,” he added. “I’m a Chicago kid, so I’m a super Ye fan, and I used to watch all the, you know, YouTube videos and, like, him speaking. And I remember just watching a video a long time ago where he would go on, he was explaining, you know, how you have your College Dropout, and then you go back you have your Late Registration, and then you finally get your Graduation. And after you graduate, you gotta go get a Good Ass Job, so that was a thing in my head forever, and, you know, if you’re a Ye fan, you know, then he went on 808s & Heartbreak, and then you’re like, “OK, Good Ass Job will be next,” and then he does Dark Twisted Fantasy and Watch the Throne. And all of those things are albums that shaped my life, but I just, I cannot wait to, you know, really just bunker down. We definitely have at least two songs I could say I know would be on Good Ass Job, but to be, you know, back in the bunker and be at the spot and have that time to just sit and make stuff everyday is my dream.”
At the 26 minute mark, the Chicago rapper speaks on recently attending the New York stop of the Saint Pablo tour and complains about the high level of sound. “Literally, my stomach felt like I had internal bleeding because of how much it was shaking and how loud it was,” said Chance. “So, if you see this, I’m just gonna text you so you don’t see this and get mad later, but turn that shit down just, just, like, four dBs or something. I don’t know,” added Kanye’s close friend.
Chance also talked about the support his dad gave him when he was starting out as an artist, if his daughter, Kinsely, enjoys his music, and how he still genuinely freaks out whenever he’s around Beyoncé, as one does.
