When "Grown Ass Kids," a collaboration between Chicago natives Chance The Rapper, Mick Jenkins and Alex Wiley, leaked the night before Chance released Coloring Book last May, the internet incorrectly assumed the song was a leftover that didn't make the cut for Coloring Book

It was not.

Unfortunately, due to pesky sample clearance issues, the version of the song we've all heard wasn't able to officially be released, but just because it didn't make its way into Chance's Coloring Book didn't mean the song's producer didn't have bigger plans in mind for the record.

Less than 24 hours after the album's exclusive release on Apple Music, producer Cam O'bi, who has production credits with Chance, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba, among others, revealed that the song would be the title track off his own album.

For the past 11 months, the Los Angeles-based O'bi has worked with YouTube to block the leaked version of the song from continuously being uploaded. On Wednesday (April 26), he finally updated fans on the status of the highly-acclaimed record and the news is quite exciting for anyone who thought the record was dead and buried.

Music fans aren't the most patient—and part of the reason is because artists have been spoiling us for years—but that patience will soon be rewarded. Good things do come to those who wait.
