Chance The Rapper is featured on the June/July cover of Complex along with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. The two artists sat down with the publication. The interview included Chance talking about whether Kanye should be so vocal about his own accomplishments.

“There’s not really a responsibility to tell people of your accomplishments, but I think in Kanye’s situation – it’s Kanye West,” said Chance. “If I was the greatest artist of this generation, and the few past generations, and a few generations going forward, I’d probably say it all the time. Especially if I was black and people didn’t really like me. I’d be like, ‘Let me remind you all the f-cking time.'”

The Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment affiliate was heavily involved in the making of Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo. Chance arguably had the standout verse on the entire album. Besides appearing on “Ultralight Beams,” Chance contributed to several other TLOP tracks. His album project Chance 3 is set to arrive on May 13.
