Chance the Rapper dropped a four pack of songs the other night but this is, by far, the standout of that group of songs. The title isn’t by coincidence, either.

Consequence revisits Kanye West’s classic “Spaceship” with a little help from Chance The Rapper, GLC, Chuck Inglish and Alex Wiley.
“‘Spaceship’ on Kanye’s 1st LP, The College Dropout was and [still] is a Fan Favorite,” Cons told HHDX. “I thought that Alex Wiley, Chance The Rapper and Chuck Inglish did a great job capturing the vibe of the original record with their own version. Once GLC co-signed it, I thought it would be great to add a verse and put a modern twist on our classic.”
