The duo, both members of hip-hop collective Savemoney, previously worked together on the track “Cocoa Butter Kisses” from Chance’s 2013 mixtape “Acid Rap,” and on Mensa’s song “Tweakin.” Last year they collaborated on a track called ‘Shelter’ with Wyclef Jean.
To mark the release of “Writing Exercise #3: Wraith,” Mensa also teased that more new music from the pair would be coming soon, telling Complex“Me and Chano have been working on a lot of music for a while now, there’s a lot more to come.
“It was produced by homie Smoko Ono and Beat Butcha,” he added of “Wraith.” Watch the video for that below.
Last year, Chance also shared the solo single “The Heart & The Tongue” and released a concert film titled Beautiful coloring world.
He also appeared on the soundtrack of Space Jam: A New Legacy, teaming up with John Legend and Symba for the track “See Me Fly”, and on “Winners”, inspired by Smoko Ono’s afrobeat. His long-awaited team-up with R&B legend Dionne Warwick, “Nothing’s Impossible,” also came out last year.
In March, he shared the single “Child Of God”, which features Moses Sumney on vocals and was performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last month.
Earlier this year, Mensa was arrested at a US airport for alleged possession of psychedelic mushrooms.
The Chicago rapper (real name Victor Mensah) flew from Ghana to Dulles International Airport in Virginia on January 15. Undergoing a secondary search at the airport, Mensa was reportedly found by authorities in possession of a range of narcotics, including LSD, psilocybin capsules and candies.
He was arrested by US Customs and Border Patrol and charged with possession of narcotics. He was returning from a promotional trip to Africa with Chance The Rapper.
