Chance The Rapper Says Lil Wayne Is Definitely The Best Rapper Alive

Chance The Rapper was the special guest on the season finale of Complex’s “Open Late With Peter Rosenberg” series.

During his sit-down conversation with Peter Rosenberg, the Chicago rapper was asked about his thoughts on Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter III album to which he said both of the albums are amazing (the leaked version and the official version).

Also in their interview, which you can watch below (head to the 27:25 mark), Chance said Tunechi is “definitely the best rapper alive” and is still his “favorite rapper to this day”. He even called Tune the best at rapping and “the Michael Jackson of rap“! Do you agree?

  • Gudda Gudda

    i dont listen to his music but chance is a real one

    • Skrrrt Cobain

      you should listen to Acid rap.

      Coco butter kisses

  • Giraffe Boy
    • Goat Tamer

      I really hope July 4th will be the day they will give us an update

      • Nijee

        Nah July 20th

        • Iamstillmusic

          Why do you say July 20th?

          • Nijee

            It make sense because its 3 weeks between Drake’s Album in June & 3 weeks between Nicki’s Album in August they been promoting this mula summer campaign & also it would give Wayne Enough time to drop the First Single and start promoting it instead of having us wait in the Fall for Sep-Oct release date

          • Nijee

            We probably get Single on July 4th but the album on July 20th

            • THATS THE FWA ANNIVERSARY DATE

              • Nijee

                Yeah Wayne been dropping music in July since 2015 so you never know

            • David D

              We probably will get nothing

      • Crown4weezy

        july 4th would make sense for a single or just an update announcement

  • Raz!

    damn right i agree

  • HE SPOKE NOTHING BUT FACTS

  • Big Tune or Lil Tune

    Scorpion First Week Sales 🤔

    • Nijee

      It probably do 800-1 Mil in the first week due to the singles & his fanbase

      • Big Tune or Lil Tune

        Could possibly this is thing it depends on what he sold already. The feed back from the album is 50% saying it’s trash 30% saying its alright 20% saying its good. The hype was different from views. I still think he’s not selling last than 700k tho.

        • Nijee

          Yeah but people always say somebody music is trash but they still going listen to it or buy it just like Wayne

          • Big Tune or Lil Tune

            Not exactly, this is a new era if on social media ppl are saying whatever is trash ppl are gping to follow the trend it can possibly hurt him or help him.. depending how much ppl actually like listening to his music. You think he can top C4 first week numbers ?

            • Nijee

              Yeah but C5 going do crazy numbers

              • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                So your pretty sure its going to sell 1m bc C4 sold 964k first week ok that’s cool. But idk what’s your term of crazy numbers 🤷‍♂️

                • Nijee

                  It’s going break numbers including streaming but after this album i think drake going start declining

                • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                  If you want me to be honest i think ppl are just hating. The album isn’t trash like ppl are saying it is but drake is in the same position wayne was in when C4 came out ppl become tired of person who’s on top and his peers start to envy them. Wayne is the closest person of this era that compares to drake number wise..

                • Nijee

                  Absolutely I feel like people want drake to fall off so somebody else can be hottest artist in the game just like how people turn on nicki soon as Cardi B blew up and people felt she took nicki spot

                • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                  Yessssss ! You’re smart the media plays a big part of how ppl think. C4 is still the highest selling rap album of first week sales their going to throw that in the atmosphere. Who had the game in their hands before drake.. “Wayne” they’re going to say shit like that. Who signed drake ? Wayne. Im telling you like i told yesterday.. its going to be “Mentor vs The Student”

                • Nijee

                  Exactly then they going say Drake is better than Wayne

                • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                  They actually are as far in sales of this era.. but in the end their going to be like wayne was in a legal issue for some years.. “but can he outsell his artist drizzy with his long waited carter Album” ?

                • Nijee

                  He will

                • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                  Depends on how they market the album. I think they will do a good job tho this album is the money grabber for universal.

                • Nijee

                  I think the rollout going be good due to only universal pushing it but I wonder if they going in parts like the original plan in 2014 or drop it all together & what release date they going for

                • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                  If that want it to REALLY sale.. like the past carters I’d say around September. If he truly drops C5 in july it will 400k-600k if the singles are big.

                • Keeze Mojito

                  Exactly Universal is pushing surgically !!!

                • Keeze Mojito

                  Universal paid Wayne more than 10 m’s so i’m pretty sure they want that money back, they gon put at least 20 millions for tha promo

                • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                  Prob. They will back bc Drake is expected to sell 870-920k first week

                • Keeze Mojito

                  Yes so the money IS definitely there for them to get behind C5, tbey gon push that shit hard as a mf no choice. Atlantic doing the same for their artist.

            • TRINX

              Scorpion is better than more life and views tho, it’s drakes most mature work. Kids are saying it’s TRASH not real music listeners

    • bsk_rich

      Just off nice for what and gods plan it’s already platinum. That shit gone do crazy numbers again drake got this streaming shit down to a science.

      • Big Tune or Lil Tune

        We dont count single sales with his album. Billboard should’ve released the sales projections by now.

        • bsk_rich

          Nah I’m saying he already platinum as far his numbers cause I seen somebody say his him and Wayne the highest selling artist but then on top of that the first week gone be crazy. Like 900k prolly. Maybe that milli again. But his numbers gone go crazy. Drake still drake

          • Big Tune or Lil Tune

            Yeah drake sold more than C4 first week with views due to “streaming” as far as pure sales wayne have the biggest first week in sales of this decade with 964k pure sales. Drake have 852k pure sales which is crazy Asf.

        • They do count

  • Ya boy is in New Orleans right now (2 mins from the French Quarter) and man this city is absolutely lawless at night. It actually made me sad to see so many people that had done nothing but waste their lives drinking and chasing the party.

    • David D

      Huh

  • Big Tune or Lil Tune

    It really could, his pure sales and streaming numbers have to be on point to a certain degree. So you think it can top C4 first week numbers ?

  • Big Tune or Lil Tune

    Yes, 2 #1 singles, im upset flopped until the video for it. Look alive peaked at #6 but nobody cared about the pusha t beef we already agreed he died. Other than that you’re right i dont see hom selling less than 700k but it’s all about what hw sold in thw first two days of his release to see what he could sell.

  • Breast Milk n Syrup

    Anybody else think Drake was sending shots at Birdman with this line from Talk Up off his Scorpion album – “My money is young, my problems are old. I promise im bridging the gap”
    Especially since its in the song featuring Jay-Z, somebody who has taken shots at Birdman himself.
    🤔

    • Nijee

      Nah probably Kanye or Pusha

      • Skrrrt Cobain

        how tf would that line have anything to do with kanye or push? smh

        • Nijee

          It’s not about birdman they always show love to each other so stfu

          • Skrrrt Cobain

            did I say it’s about birdman? are you stupid or you just dumb?

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Possibly i haven’t seen drake or nicki shout out CM in a minute

    • David D

      Doubt it

    • Patrick H

      Reach.

  • YungJackBauer

    I’m stoned all day I’m on Dusse

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      I’m ready for C5 to drop.

      • YungJackBauer

        Me too

      • 🐐🐐

        I think everyone here is.

  • Nijee

    Hope we get update on C5 this week it’s only right

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Yall been saying this the past 250 weeks

    • David D

      We won’t get anything

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    RSB u a bitch

  • David D

    That Rosenberg dude is annoying

    • RSB

      RealShit nigga lame asf remind me of kunechi

    • Patrick H

      He corny.

  • Slime Dwise

    Wayne has got to make sure that C5 is a classic with all these people still having faith in him.

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Frr i think that’s why he still working on the album

  • N.O. Samson

    Wayne’s legacy is already cemented in history but at this point of his career, another album like IANAHB2 will do more bad than good. Wayne gotta make sure that C5 is better than the Bible

    • WebberJ

      That sometimes what happen when people expecting so much and becoming over confident.

      • N.O. Samson

        Yeah that’s true

  • N.O. Samson

    What’s harder, life or Mr. Carter?
    What’s higher, the price or Mr. Carter?

    • Patrick H

      Need this so bad.

  • Andre S

    What’s y’all favorite joint on scorpion

    • #1Stunna 9X HQ Award Winner

      summer games

    • Patrick H

      The one with Jay.

    • D’uzo D’ays ®

      Is there more

  • N.O. Samson

    Don’t link me
    Don’t hit me when you hear this and tell me your favorite song
    Don’t tell me how you knew it would be like this all along
    I know the truth is you won’t love me until I’m gone
    And even then the thing that comes after is moving on 🔥🔥🔥

  • N.O. Samson

    Scorpion can hold me over until C5 comes out

  • N.O. Samson

    I have a feeling Queen is gonna sell bad, hopefully not though

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      150k-200k

      • N.O. Samson

        I think it will do something like that as well. All of Nicki’s albums sold between 200k-400k in the first week, surprisingly considering how big she is/was, so she’ll probably do less than that now, she’s not as big as she used to be

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          Yes she is, she’s still big as she was she not as hot as she was.

          • N.O. Samson

            Yh true, people say Cardi B took her place, but Nicki is still big. Maybe Cardi took Nicki’s place popularity wise but tbh Cardi B isn’t do better numbers than Nicki so we’ll see when Queen comes out. Cardi’s album sold about the same as Nicki’s does but not really better, Nicki can take her spot back again

            • Big Tune or Lil Tune

              She could in album sales but not hits cardi have that shit.

              • N.O. Samson

                Facts

            • Nicki got plenty songs in hot 100 as we speak

              • N.O. Samson

                Nicki’s still queen, the album title speaks for itself, she’ll prove everybody wrong & show she’s still on top 😂…I hope

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          Btw your actually wrong nicki usually does 200k-300k. 150k-200k isn’t excalty a flop for her it’s a win cardi sold 255k

          • N.O. Samson

            Yeah but Pink Friday sold 375k, I just rounded that up to 400k, but all her other albums sold between 200k-300k

    • Nijee

      100k-150k first week

      • N.O. Samson

        Maybe, I think a bit more than that though

      • Big Tune or Lil Tune

        Dude drake nicki and wayne actually sell. She’s doung way more she will actually she will do 100k pure sales easily

    • Mansur Abdu Lawal

      Arguably liked Rich Sex more than Chun-Li, Barbie tingz, and Bed.

  • JJFreeC5

    C5 update coming very soon.. next two weeks at the most i would think

    • Patrick H

      Another guess……

      • JJFreeC5

        Not really. If he’s dropping July it would have to be. Anything else would only mean it’s not coming out until the end of the year. Which would be very stupid on Wayne’s part.

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          I doubt c5 dropping in july its mostly likely a single or a 10-15 track album

  • N.O. Samson

    Wasn’t Wayne supposed to executive produce Scorpion? Or is it Queen?

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Tf ? Hell nawl. It’s about to Mentor vs The Student this year.

      • N.O. Samson

        Drake is signed to YM/CM. Birdman, Slim & Lil Wayne are named as executive producer on every Young Money album apart from Views & Scorpion…unless they did still executive produce it but their names aren’t on it. What’s this about mentor vs the student? Real beef or just music? I’d prefer no beef between them at all tbh

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          I wonder why not views and scorpion

          • N.O. Samson

            Same. Maybe Drake or one of them decided they wanted a change. They’re all still making money from Drake either way so it’s not that much of a big deal to them really

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          You know what’s crazy wayne always sold well as artist

          • N.O. Samson

            Facts

    • Patrick H

      Neither.

  • Tarrelle Harris

    Yeah, the neighbors don’t like me cause they know I’m pumpin’
    Bitch I ain’t cooked all this yayo for nothing
    I’m sippin’ that syrup like a acre of muddy
    I’m whippin’ that sauce like some Prego or something
    And bitch I’m the boss, watch me takeover something🔥🔥🔥🔥

    Wayne forever the goat

    • Patrick H

      Nigga we hustle.

    • My Mexican pay me in pesos or something

      • D’uzo D’ays ®

        …I hug the block…

    • Man Man

      Sippin that syrup like an eggo I’m muddy

  • PussyMoneyWeed2

    People arguing over sales when they aint getting a percentage

  • N.O. Samson

    After Scorpion, Queen & C5, they need to do another Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour, or a Big 3 tour, or a whole of YM tour

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      That was actually an idea The YM Tour

      • N.O. Samson

        I remember. I wonder if it’s still gonna happen, it better

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          Prob 2019 after their albums come out

    • Patrick H

      But it’ll be the same setlist hah.

    • Crown4weezy

      Drake needs to drop a better album for that to happen

      • N.O. Samson

        Didn’t you like Scorpion?

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          Bruhhh go to the shade room on ig.They’re drake stans all of them are calling it trash im soooooo shocked rn i thought they would dick ride him.

      • Tf

    • Fax

  • N.O. Samson

    Bring back I Am Music/I Am Still Music tour & America’s Most Wanted

    • Patrick H

      Nah cause Wayne will do the same setlist.

      • N.O. Samson

        Hopefully he switches it up after C5 is released

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          Duhh why he wouldn’t

          • N.O. Samson

            I didn’t say he wouldn’t, the other person said he’ll do the same setlist

  • Patrick H

    Chance keeping it real, he knows Wayne the GOAT.

  • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

    Been calling Wayne the MJ of rap. Youngest to start at where he was and STILL actively be involved🔥

  • Justin Cayz

            • Big Tune or Lil Tune

              Yeah true, i guess this anwser our question drake isn’t bigger than prime Wayne

              • N.O. Samson

                Oh, I knew that already tbh

                • Big Tune or Lil Tune

                  It’s weird that he isn’t tho his music is very pop and radio friendly.. wayne music is the opposite lol 😂😂

              • Obviously

            • Big Tune or Lil Tune

              870k-920k

  • Guest 333

    Hunnid thousand on my head, it’s disrespect
    So offended that I had to double check

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      First week projections out

  • Guest 333
  • I agree

  • TF is that even a question

  • Nah

  • Don’t get me wrong I fux with all Wayne eras but 2008-2011 hands down the best for me

  • Just realized Wayne got the highest first week from pure sales this decade, what a legend

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Ikr The Fuckin Goat.. you know what else is crazy ? When its time to drop C5 if it sells big numbers like the past carters he’ll be the first rapper to “fell off commercially” and sell like that.

  • Fr how doe
