Rap star Chance The Rapper has hailed Kanye West, saying he is an "amazing friend".
The 26-year-old rap star has revealed Kanye was a major influence behind his new album, even though the outspoken musician doesn't feature on the record.
Speaking to Queen Radio about Kanye, Chance explained: "He's one of the most supportive people in my life.
"I went and spent some time with him a couple weeks before the album dropped. He just gave me some ideas. We've spent a lot of time on the phone in the past two days. That's fellowship and it's strengthening each other."
Chance - who has collaborated with Nicki Minaj, John Legend and Shawn Mendes on his new record, "The Big Day" - praised Kanye for allowing him to think and to talk so "freely".
