Despite the fact that his appearance on Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam” was well praised, Chance the Rapper revealed in a recent interview with the Recording Academy that some of his rhymes on the 2016 song were not to Kanye’s liking. Chance explained further that Kanye wasn’t a fan of his Grammy-related lyrics in particular.

“I made ‘Sunday Candy’/I’m never going to hell/I met Kanye West, I’m never going to fail/He said, ‘Let’s do a good-ass job with Chance 3’/I hear you gotta sell it to snatch the Grammy,” Chance raps towards the end of his verse.

Chance told the Grammys.: “I rapped on Kanye’s shit right before it came out that I was working on these three Grammys, and I was like, ‘If I keep rapping like that, and just saying shit’s gonna happen, that’s just gonna happen,’” he said. “And it started happening. Kanye didn’t want me to say that [line] on that song.

“And I had to go back and forth with him about keeping my line on there.” said Chance the Rapper

Until June 2016, when the Recording Academy approved streaming-only albums, Chance’s mixtapes were not eligible for Grammys. Chance won Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance for “No Problem,” and Best Rap Album for Coloring Book, making him the first rapper to win Best Rap Album for a streaming-only album.

“Just being able to rap [with] the person who is arguably the reason I became a rapper—to be able to produce and write and to be featured on the intro, the first real rap verse you hear on the album, was crazy to me,” he said of the experience.

“Ultralight Beam” was a musical and cultural triumph for Kanye West, Chance The Rapper, and all other artists and producers involved. Rumors suggest that Chance may feature on Kanye’s long-awaited Donda album, which has a new release date set for Friday, according to Apple Music.
