Ye has been uncharacteristically quiet the past few weeks, likely due to time spent on himself and with the family, but Chance the Rapper revealed that Kanye says even crazier things in private.
Chance laid out his relationship with his idol Kanye West in an interview with GQ, and will appear alongside The Weeknd on one of the twin covers of GQ Magazine next month. Before the official publication, the magazine dropped their interview with Chance online which covers his relationship with his boyhood inspiration.
“Being around Kanye, Kanye says crazier shit in private than he does in public, which is hard to believe because he says the craziest things in public,” Chance said to GQ. “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.'”
While plenty have lost respect for Ye after his California outburst, Chance still admires Kanye’s confidence; that doesn’t mean he has to emulate him, or agree with him on everything though.
“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.'”
