As if influencing the Grammys’ entire eligibility system wasn’t enough, Chance the Rapper is also looking to change the way radio’s song rotation works.

Yesterday (August 16), the ever-authoritative yet still-unsigned lyricist launched RapperRadio.com, a website that, upon users entering their location, results in a list of local radio stations and then auto-generates a pre-worded tweet requesting his songs be played on their airwaves.

Currently, fans can choose from Coloring Book’s “No Problem” featuring Lil’ Wayne and 2 Chainz or “Smoke Break” featuring Jeremih and Francis and the Lights.

Pre-announcement, Chano took to Twitter to build anticipation, writing:

“I want you to share my music in whatever city you’re in with as many people as possible…. The radio is like a huge listening party for people of all demographics to get in tune. In those moments it’s mad ppl in harmony…. Let the stations know that we are here and independent music is not going anywhere.”

He also promised that whichever city produced the most tweets would receive something “special.”

Not surprisingly, the site crashed, but is up-and-running again now. Go make a request!
