Young Chop Is Working On Kanye West’s Next Album
Young Chop has been quietly putting in work this year. The Chicago native produced Puff Daddy's first single off of his upcoming album, MMM, "I Want The Love" and several records off 2014 XXL Freshman Lil Durk's latest project, Signed 2 The Streets 2. Chop even picked up the mic and released a song that featured him rapping, titled "All I Got."
These days, Chop is trying to branch out and be seen as more than just a drill producer. Chop's productions have grown since he crafted Chief Keef's two breakout 2012 hits, "Love Sosa" and "Don't Like." With the guidance of No I.D., Kanye West and Diddy, Young Chop is ready to show his maturation as a producer. Now with his own production team, Chop has been working on some of the most anticipated projects of the year—Kanye West's upcoming seventh solo album and Meek Mill's sophomore effort Dreams Worth More Than Money. XXL spoke with Young Chop about his many projects in the works, the impact of Mike WiLL Made It and DJ Mustard and the drama that's been brewing between Chief Keef and Lil Durk.
