After reports of SoundCloud only having enough funds to survive the next 50 days made waves across the internet, Chance the Rapper tweeted out a ray of hope for artists and fans of the platform. According to Chance, he contacted SoundCloud founder Alex Ljung and describes the conversation as “fruitful,” leaving fans confused and excited at the same time.

SoundCloud reiterated that the meeting between its figureheads and the Chicago rapper went well, emphasizing that they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.


The tweets come the same day Chance dropped a few hints that he would be willing to help the struggling music platform. Chance is one of the many independent artists who came to fame thanks to SoundCloud, which is where his first two mixtapes, 10 Day and Acid Rap first found their way into the public eye.

While Chance gave no other specifics on how the call went with Ljung or what kind of role he’ll play in saving the platform, we’ll keep you updated on any new developments.
