Previous episodes of Forward: The Future of Black Music have seen discussions with Chance and Taylor’s fellow indie rap stalwarts D Smoke and Tobe Nwigwe, who shared chats with John Legend and Erykah Badu, respectively. The idea was originally influenced by the TV series Iconoclasts, aiming to make viewers a “fly on the wall” for these intimate, insider discussions.
Chance recently reunited with his fellow Windy City rapper Vic Mensa on their new song “Shelter,” the first collaboration between the two since the early days of their parallel rises to stardom. Meanwhile, Taylor is about 18 months removed from his last EP, American Reject.
