Chance The Rapper wants everyone to know that he doesn’t make Christian rap, but he does consider himself a Christian rapper.
While talking with “Get Out” director Jordan Peele, the rapper revealed that with his third album “Coloring Book” he feared that it would be labeled a gospel album, and that he hate labels.
“One of my biggest fears with Coloring Book was that it would be labeled. I hate labels, I never sought out for people to recognize it as a gospel album. I don’t make Christian rap, but I am a Christian rapper,” Chance said.
“When I was going out and trying to fully give glory to God, in my setting, I feared that people would be dismissive of it, like, ‘This is Christian rap, I’m not trying to hear it.’ But it’s the total opposite: People were very accepting of it. Whether they say, ‘I’m an atheist, but I love Coloring Book’ or they say, ‘I’m so glad I was able to get closer to God through this project,’ people had formed opinions about what I put into the world. I think that’s always the goal of art, is to make people ask themselves questions. Like ‘Get Out’!” he added.
