Two of the major forces currently in the hip hop industry are Chance the Rapper and Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover.)  The two have collaborated on songs such as Favorite Song appearing on Chance the Rapper’s sophomore album Acid Rap and The Worst Guys appearing on Childish Gambino’s sophomore album Because the Internet. When Chance released his Grammy winning album Coloring Book in early 2016, he announced the collaborative effort with Glover. That was about it though. For months, the world heard nothing about this project. Every now and then, whispers would come out about this new project but nothing official or noteworthy has come out. Just when everyone started to forget that this mixtape even existed, Gambino was asked about the collaborative effort last week during an interview after his two Grammy wins that evening. He responded with “If I don’t make a mixtape with Chance the Rapper I’ll get attacked by a bunch of fourteen-year-olds.” The next day this comment was followed up in a live stream with Chano himself saying he’s been working with Glover for several years working on a “special project” which can be assumed to be the aforementioned collab album.

We have heard more about this collab album in the last month than we have for the entire time it has been announced. So with that said, is it safe to assume this album is actually happening and some real news about it will be coming out soon. “You know, I’ve heard about this album before but I thought it was all Twitter speculation,” said Kyle Kazemini, “Gambino doesn’t really talk about his projects until there’s some actual substance behind whatever project so this might be a good sign.” He had a good point, Donald Glover is a private man, doesn’t talk much about his projects unless they actually have something going for them. With his latest release, Awaken My Love back in September, Glover had said nothing about the album prior to dropping the first single Me and Your Mama especially with it coming as an entirely new type of album going with the R&B style rather than his traditional nerd rap style.

The hype is building for this alleged collab album but whether that will be worth it or not is only for time to tell.
