Chance The Rapper has released all of his music for free. It's part of a unique strategy which has also kept him away from the major labels.

But that might change with his next project.

“I might actually sell this album. That's, like, a big step in itself. I kind of hate the fact that I can't chart, really. I can chart, but the way they have the streaming shit set up is weak as fuck. It's unfair,” he told Complex. “1,500 streams is the equivalent to one [album sale], and that's just that's unfair. Nobody listens to their songs [1,500] times when they buy it—fuck outta here! So, it makes it hard. I can't really compete with other people. Not that the charts matter at all, but c'mon.”
Chance added that he doesn't have a next album yet. But he does have an idea about what that project may be like.

"I want to make something that's got a wider scope. 10 Day was all about getting suspended. Acid Rap was a lot about acid. Coloring Book was a lot about being a father and God. I think whatever this album is, it wouldn't be so centered. Acid Rap and 10 Day and Coloring Book was like a trilogy in itself. One aesthetic, one goal. Whatever my next thing is, it'll be a bit bigger. Like, maybe there'll be some type of visual component to it. Like it'll be a movie, or it'll be a play, or some type of tour. But something a little bit different than Acid Rap and 10 Day and Coloring Book."
