While taking in Kanye West's Saint Pablo show in New York City earlier this month, Chance The Rapper says he felt like he had "internal bleeding." 

"If 'Ye is listening right now, it's amazing, you gotta turn the volume down a little bit in that bitch, though," Chance told Los Angeles' Power 106 during a recent VIP party. "I know that he did it on purpose 'cause he does s--t like this on purpose but bro, please turn that s--t down." It wasn't a diss to his frequent collaborator though, but rather a gentle suggestion given his elevated stage set-up. "It makes it a crazier experience but god damn. Literally, my stomach felt like I had internal bleeding because of how much it was shaking and how loud it was." 

He also explained his turnt up performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "When we decided to do 'No Problem,' I was like, 'okay, I want to do a live TV performance' and I wrote up this thing about having the label and a performance on the table, background dancers and breaking into the office... and it's funny we sent that stage design out to a couple award shows and a few TV shows for performances and everybody was like, 'No.'" He added, "We pitched it to Ellen and they were hyped off the idea."

The Chicago rep also touched on the rumored joint project with 'Ye, Good Ass Job, saying, "It's far from done. It's something that gets brought up in conversation every once in a while. I know 'Ye is working on something with Drake, which I haven't heard any of the songs from yet but I'm sure it's all I'm gonna be listening to. Good Ass Job is something that's just been a dream for me." He also offered, "We definitely have at least two songs I can say I know would be on Good Ass Job."

Chance explained how he popped up on Diddy's Bad Boy Reunion tour in Chicago, his viral backstage hug from Beyoncé at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, attending Bey's Soul Train-themed birthday party and being a "full-on dad dad." Watch the full interview below.
