Chance the Rapper has been enjoying quite the year, making history with his first Grammy win and rescuing SoundCloud over the weekend with a Young Thug-featured banger. Despite the achievements, some rain has been thrown over Chano's parade.
On Saturday (July 15), a member of the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League production team took to Twitter and sent out a dozen of tweets that accuse Chance the Rapper of ripping them off for beats. While it's unclear who of the three producers fired up the tweetstorm, the messages claim Chano hasn't paid them for tracks, which appear to be Acid Rap tracks "Good Ass Intro," "Cocoa Butter Kisses," and "Everything's Good (Good Ass Outro)." The person behind the tweets then mocked Chance's involvement with SoundCloud, stating "The thing is @chancetherapper normalized the free business model. Don't pay (or pay minimal) for creation, post on Soundcloud and not pay royalties."
Chance the Rapper eventually responded to the accusations, confirming that he did hop on the phone with the producers and told them "sue or pull up" but also added "the money I "owe" you, I paid to the actual producer who is suing you currently to get out of that slave deal," which is a claim that they themselves deny.
Take a look at the tweetstorm below.
