Chance The Rapper and Childish Gambino might be back to work on their long-awaited collaborative effort. Since teasing the joint project since 2016, the Chicago rapper posted an Instagram photo with Gambino on Monday (Jan. 2). “Hawaii then LA, back to work. #roscoeswetsuit," read the caption. 

The phrase "Roscoe's wetsuit" made an appearance on Gambino's  2013 Because of the Internet screenplay, which featured Chance as his co-star. The two artists have also collaborated together in the past: Gambino partnered with Chance on "Favorite Song" for his acclaimed mixtape Acid Rap. Then, the Coloring Book rapper returned the favor when he featured on "The Worst Guys" for Gambino's 2013 album, Because the Internet.

Both stars are coming off a successful 2016 with their respective projects. Chance The Rapper's Coloring Book earned seven Grammy nominations, while Gambino's Awaken, My Love! album notched him a No. 1 on the R&B Albums chart upon its debut. 

Take a look at the guys' latest picture together and listen to their past collaborations below.
