Earlier in the month, Chance offered some praise of his own to Kanye, during an interview with Complex. After being questioned about the rapper’s inate ability to dote on himself, Chance dubbed Kanye “the greatest artist of this generation.”

“There’s not really a responsibility at all to tell people of your accomplishments, but I think in Kanye’s situation, it’s Kanye West,” Chance The Rapper said, during his Complex interview. “If I was the greatest artist of this generation and a few past generations and a few generations going forward, I would probably say it all the time. Especially if I was black and people didn’t really like me. I’d be like ‘Let me remind you all the fuckin’ time’…I think it’s about being a polarizing figure. So that 200 years from now when nobody really remembers any of our names, people will talk about him being an asshole and also being great.”
