Chance the Rapper and Kanye West are far from strangers—the pair recently collided at Chance's "Open Mike" night in Chicago—but that didn't stop the rising MC from absolutely losing it when Kanye threw praise his way. Friday night at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest, where they both played, 'Ye gave Chance the ultimate shout out in the middle of his set, calling him "one of the most talented young new artists," as Complex points out. In turn, Chance screamed out from the crowd, "Thank you! That's all I needed! I love you bro!" before jumping up and down. If the rumors are to be believed, the pair have been getting much better acquainted in the studio, working on a collaboration. For now, re-listen to Chance's Acid Rap cut "So Good (Good Ass Intro)" where he samples 'Ye.
