Chance the Rapper is opening up about his status as an independent artist after questions surfaced regarding his deal with Apple Music to release his Grammy-winning project Coloring Book.
The 23-year-old rapper took to his Twitter to clarify his deal, revealing that Apple paid him $500,000 to exclusively stream the album.
“I never felt the need to correct folks on my relationship with @apple but now that more people have tried to discredit my independence, I wanna clear things up,” Chance wrote in a series of tweets.
He added, “@apple gave me half a mil and a commercial to post Coloring Book exclusively on applemusic for 2 weeks. That was the extent of my deal, after 2 weeks it was on SoundCloud for free. I needed the money and they’re all good people over there.”
