11 Feb Chance the Rapper Talks N.W.A. Biopic Audition and Comedic Endeavors
In a recent interview between Chance the Rapper and Hannibal Buress, Chance discussed a previous audition for the role of Dr. Dre in the new N.W.A. Biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The talented young rapper stated, “I read for Dre, but it wasn’t in God’s plan”.
In addition to this revealing, Chance discussed a variety of other topics with Hannibal including his upcoming album, past experiences, and his desire to break into comedy.
CHANCE: Have you ever actually really wanted to do that? You know, I’ve been dabbling in the comedy world, showing up at random improv shows. Been on stage doing four minute sets. So I figured, “Hannibal’s going give me my big break.” I can come out to NY and fucking crush it.
BURESS: I haven’t really seen your stand up yet. I think it’s a tough transition. It’s easy to go from comedian to rapper, but to go from rapper to comedian is tougher. I mean, your name is “Chance the Rapper.”
CHANCE: You mean for me to go into comedy, I’m going to have change my name?
BURESS: “Chance the Comedian.”
CHANCE: I’m probably going to do some comedy shows at my new sets. I can be very funny. I actually went out for a role in Empire.
We are yet to confirm if this is an actual goal in Chance’s mind or simply playful banter with Buress. Regardless, we can expect to see a full album from him that is “super dope” in the near future.
