Chance the Rapper made a brief, but impactful announcement on his Facebook page on August 17. A thirty second clip entitled “Good Ass Job” shows Kanye West on stage at Chance’s Open Mike event announcing he is making Chance’s next album. It will, of course, be entitled Good Ass Job.
Recently, Chance ignited speculation on social media that the pair’s rumored joint album would use Kanye’s long forgotten tentative fourth album title. As it goes, Kanye’s fourth studio album planned to use the naming convention of his first three records, The College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and ultimately, a Good Ass Job was promised thereafter. The album was shelved in the wake of Kanye’s mother’s passing and a failed marriage, and eventually gave way to Ye’s 808’s and Heartbreak. Now Chance is putting rumors to bed, and hopefully setting the course Kanye set a decade ago straight, confirming Good Ass Job is officially on the way.
This album will see West continue on as producer in an impressive showing in 2018, releasing multiple albums for artists Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Teyana Taylor as well as his own. For Chance the Rapper, this confirms the forthcoming album he has been referencing throughout the year, and will be the first full length release for the Chicago artist since 2016’s Coloring Book. In 2018, Chano starred in a movie and released a handful of new singles, including “I Might Need Security.”
