Video: Chance The Rapper & J. Cole Debut “Thotty” @ UIC’s Spark In The Park

| September 8, 2014 | 0 Comments

Earlier this year, Chano hit Al Lindstrom’s Toca Tuesdays to premiere a new record titled “Thotty“. There weren’t many details surrounding the song at the time, but we suspected that the track featured or was produced by J. Cole due to Cole’s ad-libs heard in the radio-rip.

Fast forward to this past Thursday and Chance joined Cole onstage during UIC’s Spark In The Park 2014 to perform their collaboration in full. No word on if we’ll get to hear it in mp3 form soon, but we sure hope so.

Until then, check out the footage of Chance and Cole performing “Thotty” above. Thanks, Nav.
