Published Nov 22, 2016Chance the Rapper had a huge year with the release of his gospel-infused Coloring Book mixtape, and he's now taking his tunes across the Atlantic from his beloved hometown of Chicago all the way to London. He stopped by BBC Radio 1 Xtra today (November 22) for a radio interview and performance.
Backed by the Social Experiment, Chance delivered an explosive rendition of Coloring Book's "All We Got" — pausing midway through the song to send his love and prayers to "big brother" Kanye West. "I want to just extend this prayer and this love from all the way in Britain," he said. "We might come home early to see this man. Happy Thanksgiving."
As previously reported, West was hospitalized yesterday (November 21) and has cancelled all upcoming dates on his "Saint Pablo Tour."
After heaping some additional praise on his mentor, Chance and the Social Experiment crew then hung around to make a contribution to the "Live Lounge" cover series. They opted to do an homage to Drake, performing a revamped version of "Feel No Ways" from this year's VIEWS.
You can listen to the entire show here. Chance's segment begins at the 2:16 mark, then picks up again with the "Live Lounge" segment at the 2:28 mark.
