The wait is almost over for fans of Chance The Rapper.

Fans of Chance The Rapper have been waiting a LONG time for a new album. His last project The Big Day dropped all the way back in 2019. And on top of the long time fans have had to wait for new material, many also weren't that fond of his most recent release. The Big Day was panned by critics and fans alike for the seemingly low-effort style of much of Chance's writing and performances. He hasn't exactly been silent since then, releasing a number of singles in the years since. But now fans finally have a concrete timeline of when they can expect a new project from Chance.

He's been teasing a new album called Star Line Gallery for years now. While very little has been known about the album, Chance recently made a major revelation. During an Instagram Live he surprised viewers with a surprise announcement. "My album coming out next Spring" he says in a clip from the live. Even though it isn't a precise release date fans were hyped to hear that the album is nearing completion and Chance plans on releasing it relatively soon. Check out the announcement video and some of the fan reactions to it below.

While Chance The Rapper's biggest fans are thrilled by the announcement, the reaction from the rap world at large hasn't been quite as hyped. Many took to the comments of reposts of the announcement video to share their apathy.
