Chance the Rapper recently stopped by Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art to take part in Pitchfork's "In Sight Out" discussion series. While chatting with contributor Adrienne Samuels Gibbs, the Chicago native hints that a project between him and Childish Gambino could be on the way.
Talk of a joint mixtape has been happening for a while. Just last year, Donald Glover said, "I feel like if I don’t make a Chance the Rapper mixtape, a bunch of 14-year-olds are gonna kick my ass."
"We perpetuated that rumor for a long time without recording anything," Chance now says. "We did link up in Atlanta and record some tracks and they're amazing."
In addition to the possibility of a double mixtape, Chance also teases the prospect of new material with Kanye West. Chance clams up when asked if he's been working on anything with the fellow Chicago native, to which he reluctantly replies "I guess."
Chance's full conversation will be available as a podcast in the coming weeks, Pitchfork reports.

Q: “What’s the most significant creative insight you learned from Kanye West?”@chancetherapper: He showed me how to multitask and use the studio for more than making music... he’ll rent out a whole studio and fill it up with different projects.— MCA Chicago (@mcachicago) March 6, 2018

I met one lady who worked on the LEGO movie and she was talking to, get this, *a magician.* They were talking about how to make Kanye disappear during a show.
