Per the magic of Twitter, people are buzzing about the idea that Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper may be working on a project together. Most are calling it a “hint” at this point (including us), but based on the sound of the Tweet, it’s sounding pretty straight forward. Odds are heavily in the favor that the duo are in the process of working on an album.
now that chance finally released his verse on “worst guys”, maybe he can hurry up and finish the rest of our EP. #hinthint

Seriously, what a perfect combination, if true. Their alternative styles, if done correctly, should mesh perfectly on an entire album. Not to mention, Gambino has some pretty stellar singing ability, and even plays some guitar. Chance messes with rock music on a fairly regular basis, and the idea of them meshing their ideas and concepts into one act should excite the masses.
When a rapper asks you to be featured on a track is one thing. To collaborate on entire album is a completely different thing. For that reason, it’s tough to post links of the two of them together on eachother’s tracks. Still, to give you an idea of what you may be working with, we’ll give you links for each of them, from each artist’s solo work.
First, Chance featuring Gambino on “Favorite Song” from Chance’s Acid Rap mixtape:
Next, and lastly, we have a track that the Tweet alludes to, “The Worst Guys”. It’s currently listed as “Childish Gambino feat. Chance the Rapper”. We’ll see if that holds up at all.
