Chance The Rapper and The Weeknd cover the latest issue of GQ magazine. The Chicago MC and Toronto crooner get their own covers of the February 2017 issue of the men’s fashion mag.

In the feature story, Chance speaks on wanting to like Kanye West, but only to a certain point

Says GQ:

“I don’t think I ever wanted to be like Kanye in personality,” Chance the Rapper tells GQ’s Mark Anthony Green of his musical idol, Kanye West. “… 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… Like when he went onstage with Taylor, I was like…well…Beyoncé kind of deserved that. I’m rationalizing everything that he does, but I can’t say that in the same position I would do the same things… I always wanted to be more 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.”

The February issue of GQ hits newsstands in New York and L.A on January 17 before being available nationwide on January 24.
