Chance The Rapper Ranks Kanye West's Albums, Says He 'Loves Kanye's Music As a Whole'
Chance The Rapper's admiration for Kanye West runs deep. Not only has Chance referred to West as his mentor but also as one of his favorite artists. Earlier this week, the younger Chicagoan dived deep into West's discography and ranked his favorite Kanye albums from best to worst on Twitter.
After Complex released a list of their favorite Kanye albums of all-time, Chance felt compelled to compile a ranking of his own, especially after he disagreed with the ranking of Late Registration. "How am I supposed to keep reading this after you put Late Registration 2nd to last?? *Tyra Banks' "We were all rooting for you" gif*," he wrote on Twitter.
Chance gave West's 2005 sophomore studio effort Late Registration the top spot. The "No Problem" rapper then went with West's 2004 debut College Dropout second, 2009's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy third, 2007's Graduation fourth, and the Jay Z joint album Watch the Throne released in 2011, rounded out Chance's Top 5. Despite being featured on West's 2016 effort The Life of Pablo, Chance placed the album sixth on his list.
Take a look at his full ranking below.

Once people caught wind of Chance's ranking, he made sure to insist that the list doesn't mean he favors some of West's records over others. "I love Kanye's music as a whole," he wrote.
