Chance the Rapper has officially announced his first new mixtape in almost eight years.

The "No Problems" rapper, whose last mixtape "Coloring Book" was released in 2016, announced the project by way of changing his Instagram bio.

“Working on my mixtape it’s called 'Star Line,'" his bio now reads.

On Tuesday, Chance also shared a snippet of a new song, "Buried Alive," which begins with him rapping: "I was in a dark space, between a rock and a hard place."

"should I drop a video?" he captioned the clip.

Though Chance's last mixtape was released in 2016, his debut album, "The Big Day," dropped in 2019.

In an interview with Complex in 2022, Chance confirmed that his sophomore album would be titled "Star Line Gallery" and include the previously released singles Child of God,” “A Bar About a Bar,” and “The Highs & The Lows.”

During an Instagram live video in December 2023, Chance then revealed that the project would be dropping in the near future.

“My album’s coming out next spring,” he said during the broadcast.

It's currently unclear whether the "Star Line" mixtape is the same project as "Star Line Gallery," or will serve as a precursor to the album.

Representatives for Chance the Rapper did not immediately respond to Rising Rap's request for comment.
