Grammy award winning rapper Chance The Rapper has said that his debut album project could potentially be put for sale. “I might actually sell this album. That’s like, a big step in itself,” Chance says in an interview with Complex Magazine.
Chance shared his unimpressed views with the way music charts work which is currently weighted towards commercial albums. “I kind of hate the fact that I can’t chart, really. I can chart, but the way they have the stream shit set up is weak as fuck. It’s unfair. And, you know, I don’t know if it’s— it’s like 1,500 or 1,700 streams is the equivalent to one unit, and that’s just, you know— that’s unfair. Nobody listens to their songs 1,700 times when they buy it, fuck outta here. So, it makes it hard. I can’t really— I can’t compete with other people. Not that the charts matters at all, but like, come on.”
Chance who’s already released three successful mixtapes, also gave insight into his debut album which aims to be significantly aesthetically different from his mixtapes.
