AceShowbiz - Chance The Rapper addressed the viral video of fellow rapper Kanye West screaming at him during the "Donda" session in Wyoming. In a new interview with "The Morning Hustle", Chance reflected on the leaked clip, reminding listeners that the clip is "of a larger moment" and that nobody will ever get the full story.
"People do take it and run with it, because I saw some people put, like, fake captions under the video to make it look like he was talking about my music or something like that," Lil Chano said. "But in all honesty, it's like, you know, this is real life. Like, I have real friends and they go through real problems."
Chance went on to say that he felt as if the public "exploited a moment" that was genuine. "I try and be my most real self, you know, and the way I talk to people as if they're my friend and as if they're anything other than that," he divulged.
He also shared that he flew to Wyoming to simply "check on his friend" because he was genuinely worried about him. "Me and a lot of other people still have love for Ye," he continued. "But he's a human, he's not perfect. He was obviously going through it at that time. It made me re-evaluate my friendship with him, for sure. I had never been so close to him going through an episode."
"I talked to him after he went through stuff before and obviously, like, he came to my wedding and this is somebody that I really, really love and talk to and stuff. But it did just make me realize that I got a whole life in Chicago, I got my own stuff that I gotta deal with too," the "No Problem" spitter added. "At the end of the day, I definitely love the dude. That's my guy. It sucks that sometimes people can exploit a moment that is a genuine moment."
The footage was reportedly part of Ye's "Donda"-focused documentary that was helmed by Dame Dash. In the video, the "Famous" rapper could be seen snapping at his fellow Chi-Town rapper, yelling, "Sit your a** down and listen to the album or leave."
Dash explained in the clip that the tense moment took place during a "Donda" recording session. "So, you know, Kanye is finishing his album and there's people around. Chance, honestly, because of what he was reading, he came through just to check Kanye," Dame said, referring to the ex-husband of Kim Kardashian making headlines for his erratic and concerning antics. "You know, again, Kanye deals with his issues at all times. They got into it, but they worked it out. At the end of the day, Chance was there just to be a friend."
