I remember listening for like, the next two hours, trying to find out who it was. Then they played All Falls Down, and the radio station was like, This is Kanye West.

That’s why it was so hard for people to understand that I rap, because for a long time they didn’t take me seriously for who I was. By like, eighth grade, I was really rapping.

  • You can love somebody through anything when they’re your child, and now that I understand that, it makes me work better with people; it makes me more understanding of how much dedication and love I can put into each line. There’re no throwaway lines. Chance The Rapper
  • The whole point of ‘Acid Rap’ was just to ask people a question: does the music business side of this dictate what type of project this is? If it’s all original music and it’s got this much emotion around it and it connects this way with this many people, is it a mixtape? What’s an ‘album’ these days, anyways? — Chance the Rapper

It was fourth grade, after Dropout came out. I made a book of poems, little illustrations in them. Poems, you know? But they were really raps. — Chance the Rapper
  • My grandmother is a huge part of my life. She’s just a great woman; a woman of the church. [She’s] a huge influence in my life in terms of my faith and my ideas of love, and women, and family roles: matriarchal role, patriarchal role. She’s very involved in my music and very attentive to what I do. She always wanted a song, so me and Nico, he’s Donnie Trumpet, we both are very close to her. We were making the project, we made the record for her, and we decided we wanted it to be the only single. We did it like that. — Chance the Rapper
