Longtime admirers and pioneers in their respective fields, Chance The Rapper and Jordan Peele, finally got together for a discussion in TeenVogue‘s “Volume II: Music Issue.” The cover star and Get Out! director delved into their mutual fascination with Kanye West and Dave Chappelle, with Chano detailing his time working with West on The Life of Pablo and his own Coloring Book.
Peele makes sure to pull all the threads, prying into a shared interest in remaining independent of labels in their pursuits and continuing to challenge any and all expectations by reclaiming their narratives as black creatives. They dissect Peele’s historic horror film, Get Out!, and the inherent responsibilities of trail-blazers. In a standalone clip separate from the transcript, Chance tells the story of his first meeting with Barack Obama. Peele is explicit with his reverence for Chance and the rapper’s dedication to philanthropy and impacting his hometown, and how such a positive force can be such a subversive figure in hip-hop.
