Chance the Rapper Reveals ‘Star Line’ Mixtape with Star-Studded Collaborations


Chance the Rapper has announced a new mixtape, “Star Line,” signaling his return to the music scene after a quiet period. The reveal was made through a change in his Instagram bio, which now states, “Working on my mixtape it’s called Star Line.” Alongside this subtle announcement, Chance dropped a teaser on X (formerly Twitter), showcasing clips featuring notable artists like Lil Wayne, DJ Premier, Lil Yachty, Jermaine Dupri, T-Pain, Jazze Pha, and Vic Mensa.

Upcoming Collaborations and Music Previews

In the teaser, fans got a sneak peek of “Buried Alive,” a new track from the mixtape. Chance sparked further excitement by polling his followers on whether he should release a music video for the song. This move points to an interactive approach in his promotion strategy, engaging fans directly in the rollout of his upcoming work.


Historical Inspiration Behind the Title

During a 2022 interview with Sway, Chance explained the historical and personal significance of the mixtape’s title. He drew inspiration from Marcus Garvey’s Black Star Line, a shipping line established between 1919 and 1922 that connected the United States, the Caribbean, and Africa. This created a network that fostered Black unity and economic independence. Chance ties this historical context to the broader theme of global Blackness and connectivity, which also resonates with the national symbol of Ghana—the Black Star.


Anticipation for Release

After mixed reactions to his 2019 album “The Big Day,” Chance has described “Star Line” as one of his proudest projects, emphasizing his writing and artistic vision growth. He has targeted a Spring 2024 release for the mixtape, which may also be a precursor to his announced second studio album, “Star Line Gallery.”

As fans eagerly await the new mixtape, Chance the Rapper continues to tease more content and features, promising an impactful return to the music industry.
