Chance the Rapper and Kanye West working on joint album

COLLABORATION: Kanye West and Chance the rapper

KANYE WEST and Chance The Rapper have collaborated many times over the past few years - and now the hip-hop giants have begun working on a joint album.

The Chicago natives were seen heading into the studio with producer Zaytoven on Wednesday (Aug 30) after Kanye confirmed they were set to begin the process of making the hotly-anticipated seven-track LP.

Appearing on local radio station 107.5 WGC, the All Day rapper said: “I came home to work with Chance on his new album."

Speaking previously the project, Chance said: "We've just started making it, but I don't want to manipulate the situation and impose any time frame, because that can hinder you."

The Acid Rap hitmaker first announced his project with Kanye in June, also spilling he's working on a project with Childish Gambino - aka Donald Glover.

Announcing the two LPs, he said: "I've been actively working on the project with Childish. I'm going to do a seven-track with Ye (Kanye)."

On the work he's made with Glover, he added: "We've got six songs that are all fire, but I think the album is going to be more than 14 songs."

Chance recently surprised his fans by dropping four tracks, whilst announcing he'd bought the news outlet Chicagoist.

The 25-year-old rapper released Work Out, Wala Cam, I Might Need Securityand 65th and Ingleside.

The new songs see the Mixtape rapper head in a political direction as he calls out Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel.

On I Might Need Security, he blurts out: “And Rahm you done/I’m expecting a resignation/and open investigation on all these paid vacations for murderers."

Whilst on 65th he heaps praise on his regular collaborator Donald.

He raps: “All my raps was about suspension/Then one day Donald took me on tour/Young, broke Chano ain’t broke no more.”

Chance's hotly-anticipated follow-up to 2014's Coloring Book is also in the works, with Chance teasing it's in the final stages.

He said: "I got that feeling when people do something that has a new feel to it. I'm excited for everybody to get that."
