Chance The Rapper wed his longtime love Kirsten Corley earlier this year, but if it wasn’t for a conversation with Offset, it may not have happened when it did!
On Thursday (Sept. 12), Chance stopped by L.A. radio station Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood for a chat that included a debate on albums versus mixtapes, Kanye West being his spiritual advisor and more. During the interview, Chano revealed that a convo he’d had with Offset about doing a feature for Cardi B’s debut album Invasion of Privacy was actually what led to him finally tying the knot!
“This other thing that actually changed my life. We were at Coachella when we had this conversation,” Chance began. “He was like, ‘Everybody doesn’t know this, but this thing between me and Bardi isn’t fake. We actually just got married in my backyard like a couple weeks ago and we didn’t tell anybody.’ And this was before it got announced that he was married, this is before like everything that’s happened through their relationship. And he was like, ‘This is my wife! This is who I’ma be with for the rest of my life. So like as close as we are, just know we a million times closer and this is what we need as a family. Obviously her album’s dope and blah blah, but just keep it real with me if you’re gonna do this.’ And I was like, ‘Before you said all that stuff I wanted to do it, but now I’m gonna do it AND I’m gonna propose to my wife soon!’ So Set just being one hundred percent clear about it definitely probably one of the big inspirations of me manning up.”
Chance and his wife wed back in March, and recently just welcomed their second daughter. Because of her birth, Chance has decided to push back his upcoming North American tour so that he can spend some more bonding time before hitting the road.
