To support his resume as one of rap’s greatest free agents and clear the air, the Chicago rapper has taken to Twitter to break down the details of his professional relationship with Apple Music. “I wanna clear things up. @apple gave me half a mil and a commercial to post Coloring Book exclusively on applemusic for 2 weeks,” explained Chance. As Chance also noted in today’s tweets, he’s revealing this information in order to be completely transparent with his fans.
