Chance The Rapper‘s third mixtape is growing with anticipation and he added fuel to the fires by releasing what appears to be the cover for the tape.
According to Fake Shore Drive, Chance The Rapper has not changed his Twitter profile picture in three years. But this weekend he changed it to what looks to be the cover for his new mixtape Chance 3. Chance took to social media to share the image.
Of course, people started to speculate about exactly when and how his new mixtape would be released. But when you visit his website, ChanceRaps.com, there is no extra information on the tape. However, there is a link that leads you to buy poster sized prints of the artwork at a price of 10 for $20.
It looks like the deal was too easy to pass up as posters have started to cover the streets.
The Chance 3 cover art is designed by Chicago-based artist Brandon Breaux who also designed Chance’s previous mixtape covers for 10 Day and Acid Rap.
Chance The Rapper has had a very busy year so far. He stole the show with his guest verse on Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam,” with perhaps the best bars on the entire The Life Of Pablo album. He also performed the song alongside West on Saturday Night Live. Before that, he made history in becoming the first independent artist to be invited as a musical guest on SNL.
To celebrate the 2016 MLB season, the Chicago native linked with New Era Caps to design a line of Chicago White Sox baseball caps. In April he released the video for his single “Angels” to much fanfare. It has been reported that Chance and Lil Wayne have made music together as well.
Chance 3 will be Chance The Rapper’s first mixtape since the critically-acclaimed Acid Rap album, one that some have considered to be his generation’s The College Dropout, that he dropped in 2013.
