GQ Magazine just announced it will publish two different covers for the month of February. Hip hop and R&B staples Chance The Rapper and The Weeknd will grace the covers of the celebrated men’s mag. The edition will also feature interviews with each artist. Chance discussed the prospect of having more children, why he doesn’t want to be like Kanye West personality-wise and the repercussions of a Donald Trump presidency.

“I don’t think I ever wanted to be like Kanye in personality,” he says. “I think I definitely want to, have always wanted to, have his boldness or assurance in myself. But I’ve definitely seen Kanye do things where I was like, ‘I’d never do that’ I’ve always been able to defend Kanye… Like when he went onstage with Taylor, I was like…well…Beyoncé kind of deserved that. I’m rationalizing everything that he does, but I can’t say that in the same position I would do the same things… I always wanted to be more a person that people enjoy. Somebody that will make you laugh. I’m talking about just my personality, not necessarily how my music sounds. Because I believe I’m a disrupter like Kanye in a lot of ways.”
