Chance The Rapper says he auditioned for the role of Dr. Dre in “Straight Outta Compton,” “but it wasn’t in God’s plan.”
In a move similar to that of the one Beyonce pulled in late 2013, Chicago lyricist Chance The Rapper may possibly release his upcoming Surf album without warning. The wordsmith spoke on the album during an interview with comedian and fellow Chicago native, Hannibal Buress for Interview magazine.
He compared the album, which he created with The Social Experiment, to “a Beyoncé kind of thing” and added that he can’t reveal the release date.
“The album is very much so a Beyoncé kind of thing. I can’t say the date of the project,” Chance said during his interview with Buress. “But, I can say that it’s super dope.”
Chance also dropped another interesting tidbit during the interview when he revealed that he auditioned for the role of Dr. Dre in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Unfortunately for the rapper, he says “it wasn’t in God’s plan.”
“I actually did try out for the N.W.A. movie…I read for Dre. But it wasn’t in God’s plan,” he said.
Earlier this year, Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment released a small Surf teaser with the release of their “Nothing Came To Me” silent film, which featured English model Cara Delevigne.
