Chance the Rapper is still on an “Ultralight Beam.” After hinting towards a new project on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo track, the Chicago spitter reveals the cover art for his first solo project in three years, Chance 3.
Chano announced the project with a cryptic tweet on Saturday (Apr. 30). It just featured the title and hashtag—”#chance3 Chance 3″—with a link to a website selling posters of the cover art.

Previously expected to drop in April, its actual release date remains unclear. However, it looks like Chance will either be celebrating the project’s release or hyping fans up for it on Thursday (May 5) when he’s scheduled to hit “The Tonight Show.”
Chance 3 is set to be the follow-up to 2012’s 10 Day and 2013’s Acid Rap.
He referenced the project during his verse on “Ultralight Beam.” “I met Kanye West, I’m never going to fail / He said let’s do a good ass job with Chance 3,” raps Chance. “I hear you gotta sell it to snatch the Grammy / Let’s make it so free and the bars so hard / That there ain’t one gosh darn part you can’t tweet.”
Just last month, Chano released the video for his Saba-assisted single “Angels,” which could end up on Chance 3.
