Kanye West confirms good ass job album with Chance the rapper on the way
It’s been 15 years since Kanye West first announced his Graduation follow-up would be titled Good Ass Job. Set to be a culmination of his college-themed albums, the project never came, but it’s now coming in the form of a collaboration with Chance The Rapper.
Appearing at Chano’s Open Mike event in Chicago on Monday night (Sept. 17), ‘Ye broke the news about the upcoming project. “Me and Chance working on a new album. It’s called Good Ass Job,” Yeezy told the crowd, which sent them into a frenzy.
Chance and Kanye have been teasing a collaborative project all summer and were spotted in the studio together in August working on new music. In photos that were shared online, producer Zaytoven could also been seen with the Windy City artists.
While Good Ass Job was originally supposed to release after Graduation, Yeezy instead dropped 808s & Heartbreaks in 2008 following his mother’s death and then released My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010—putting an end to the hopes for Good Ass Job.
The project laid dormant until 2016 when Chance began teasing a collaboration with ‘Ye. “The main thing we want to connect on is this project called Good Ass Job,” Chano told Beats 1. The rapper then teased the title once again on Kanye’s “Ultralight Beam,” rapping, “He said let’s do a good ass job with Chance 3.”
