Blessings to all the 14 year olds of the world.
Thanks to them, we might finally get our hands on a whole mixtape from Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper after years of teases from the two artists.
During the 2017 Emmy awards, big winner Donald Glover addressed his work as Childish Gambino and whether or not music made under that moniker would continue.
“I don’t ever want to do anything because I’m forced too. Once you do that things start to get bad…also I feel like if I don’t make a Chance the Rapper double mixtape, a bunch of 14 year olds are going to kick my ass,” Glover said. “They stop me in the street and it’s kind of scary so I feel like I gotta do something and probably will.”
Earlier this year, Chance addressed the long standing rumors about new music from the two friends, explaining that he was in the studio with Fetty Wap and Gambino in London this summer. “Me and Donald have more songs together,” he cryptically said in a live Instagram video.
The mention of a Gambino/Chance project brought out a heap of people on Twitter excited that the possibility of this project hasn’t completely died.
I don’t think there’s a single person on this earth who understands how important a Chance & Childish Gambino collab album is to me

Until it happens though, we’ll just play their 2014 song “The Worst Guys” on loop.
