Chance the Rapper is ready to make up for the lack of new music released in these past two years.

The 25-year-old rapper, whose latest mixtape Coloring Book came out in 2016, revealed that he is currently working on two collab albums with both Kanye West and Childish Gambino. Chance made the big reveal during his appearance on Complex’s Open Late with Peter Rosenberg.

“What’s cool is Ye’s kind of got me in a mode of understanding your ability to multitask and work on different things,” said Chance. “I’ve been actively working on the project with Childish. I’m going to do a seven-track with Ye in July.”

Asked about the project with Childish Gambino, Chance the Rapper revealed that they “got six songs that are all fire” but that “the album is going to be more than 14 songs.”

“Kanye is my favorite rapper that I followed without knowing [personally] for a long time, and Donald Glover was the first rapper who was like, ‘Come on tour’ with me,” he added.

Chance the Rapper hasn’t been particularly active since the Grammy Award-winning Coloring Book, but still made a couple of features including a guest appearance on Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy album.
