Chance The Rapper 'Doesn't Want To Be Like Kanye West In Personality'

By Daryl Nelson

It's well known that Chance The Rapper looks up to Kanye West's music. But that doesn't mean he loves his fellow Chicago emcees personality.

Chance is this month's cover boy for GQ, and in the accompanying article the Coloring Book rapper said he never set out to act like Ye, and he often disagrees with what he says.

"I don't think I ever wanted to be like Kanye in personality," Chance admitted. "I think I definitely want to, have always wanted to, have his boldness or assurance in myself, but I've definitely seen Kanye do things where I was like, 'I'd never do that.' I've always been able to defend Kanye. When everybody's like, 'Kanye's a nut, Kanye's a nut,' I'm one of those guys saying, 'No, he's saying some real shit.'
Elsewhere in the interview, the 'No Problem' rhymer said that Ye actually says stranger things away from the camera, which really surprises him.

"Kanye says crazier shit in private than he does in public, which is hard to believe because he says the craziest things in public," stated Chance. "He does have a filter. He's not a liar or somebody that is going to sugarcoat things when he does speak, but Kanye's said some crazy shit to me where I respond, 'No, I don't feel you at all.'"
