New York Times writer Jon Caramanica recently linked up with ’Ye for three days.

Take that for what you will.”

Recently, collaborator Francis and the Lights said there are rumors that West might produce a seven-song album for Chance The Rapper. In an upcoming interview with Complex’s Open Late, it is revealed that Chance will address whether or not this is true.
