During an interview with GQ, Chance The Rapper talked about his relationship with his idol Kanye West.
Next month, Chance The Rapper will feature on one of the twin covers of GQ alongside The Weeknd. Ahead of the print publication, the men's mag posted online the interview it did with the rapper. In it, Chance details his relationship with Kanye West and how his attitude differs from that of his boyhood idol.
"Being around Kanye, Kanye says crazier shit in private than he does in public, which is hard to believe because he says the craziest things in public," he told GQ. "He does have a filter. He's not a liar or somebody that is going to sugarcoat things when he does speak. But Kanye's said some crazy shit to me where I respond, 'No, I don't feel you at all.'"
Chance said he admired Kanye's confidence but doesn't feel the need to emulate him in every way. Still, the Coloring Book spitter and Grammy nominee thinks Yeezy has much wisdom to impart.
"I've always been able to defend Kanye. When everybody's like, 'Kanye's a nut, Kanye's a nut,' I'm one of those guys saying, 'No, he's saying some real shit.'"
