Rich Gang’s Young Thug recently shared his admiration for Chicago’s Chance The Rapper and explained his slept-on greatness.
In Thugger’s opinion, Chance does not fully receive all of the accolades he deserves.
“They been sleeping. I think they gonna always sleep on him,” Thug said referring to Chance. “He’s gonna die like Prince. He’s gonna die a slept on legend.” (Hip Hollywood)
Last month, Chance’s The Coloring Book album made history on the music charts.
The independently released album bowed exclusively through Apple Music’s streaming service on May 13 and launches at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 with 38,000 equivalent album units. Nearly all of those units were generated by streams of the albums tracks via Apple Music, equating to 57.3 million streams. (Each streaming equivalent album unit is equal to 1,500 streams from an album.) (Billboard)
Recently, rap star Kanye West co-signed Chance’s new Coloring Book mixtape.
