In an interview GQ America, he said: “I don’t think I ever wanted to be like Kanye in personality, though.
“I think I definitely want to, have always wanted to, have his boldness or assurance in myself.
“But I’ve definitely seen Kanye do things where I was like, ‘I’d never do that.
“I’ve always been able to defend Kanye.
“When everybody’s like, ‘Kanye’s a nut’, I’m one of those guys saying, ‘No, he’s saying some real s***.”
The 23-year-old hip-hop star admits that he wants to be a people’s person, but that his music may come across differently.
He added: “But Kanye’s said some crazy s*** to me where I respond, ‘No, I don’t feel you at all.’
“I always wanted to be more of a person that people enjoy.
“Somebody that will make you laugh.
“I’m talking about just my personality, not necessarily how my music sounds.
“Because I believe I’m a disrupter like Kanye in a lot of ways.”
People are already comparing Chance to Kanye, as ‘Ordinary People’ hitmaker, John Legend – who worked with Chance on the song ‘Penthouse Floor’ – recently said he thinks he is the next Yeezy.
He said: “Kanye and I are both big fans of Chance’s and I feel he is the next big guy.”
