The Complex Networks’ new interview series The Complex Cover is a kind of old-fashioned show in that it presents a conversational style of interview – just a couple people talking about stuff (something that has rarely been done well since the late Tom Snyder left The Tomorrow Show).
In its first installment, The Complex Cover’s Noah Callahan-Bever sits down with Chance the Rapper for his most personal interview yet.
The Complex Cover launches Monday, March 13th (11:30/10:30C).
CHANCE THE RAPPER SITS DOWN FOR HIS MOST PERSONAL INTERVIEW YET WITH THE LAUNCH OF COMPLEX’S NEW DIGITAL VIDEO SERIES ‘THE COMPLEX COVER’ ON MONDAY, MARCH 13
The Grammy Winning Artist Talks About Fatherhood, Fame, and What’s Next in His Career
New York, NY (March 10, 2017) – Chance the Rapper sits down with Complex’s Noah Callahan-Bever for his most revealing and personal interview since winning three Grammy Awards as the inaugural guest for Complex’s new monthly video series The Complex Cover launching Monday, March 13 at 11:30 a.m. ET.
In the interview, Chance opens up about fatherhood and the birth of his first child, his collaboration with Kanye, his trailblazing path through the music industry and his ambitious plans for his next album.
From The Complex Cover interview, on being unsigned and independent:
“I need more artists to do it themselves. I try and stress this as often as possible…you’re the upper management. You’re the creative, you are the last decision maker, and you don’t ever have to feel compromised.”
“We have known that Chance was one of the most talented artists in popular music since we gave him his first magazine cover in 2013,” says Noah Callahan-Bever, chief content officer at Complex. “So it was only right that as we boldly complete Complex’s transition to a premier video channel that we do it in collaboration with not only a longtime friend of our brand but more importantly the most progressive and disruptive artist in the music industry.”
