Read on and see what Chance The Rapper is doing on his tour…
We don’t know is Sony, Universal, Warner and Capital are going to be taking kind to Chance The Rapper mocking their shifty and uncouth contracts they dish out.
The “No Problems” rapper performed at San Diego’s Valley View Casino for his Be Encouraged Tour and basically clowned eight of the most popular music labels by reconstructing their logos into something more comical and crude.
During Chano’s production he was backed by a giant video screen that flashed the new label signage. Sony turned into Phony, Def Jam Recordings to Don’t Join Recordings, Aftermath Entertainment to Can’t Do Math Entertainment, Warner Music Group to Wiener Music Group, Virgin to Villain, Motown to No Crown, Epic to Edick and Universal to Undiverse. Did anyone notice that Interscope Records was not mocked? People still question his relationship with Apple Music and Jimmy Iovine. What’s up with that?
Anyways, he made sure to show that he won three Grammy’s as an Independent Artist! Best New Artist, Best New Album for Coloring Book and Best Performance for “No Problem,” which featured his buddies 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne. NOTE: Chance wouldn’t have been able to win if the Recording Academy hadn’t changed its rules by allowing streaming-only titles to be counted for nomination.
Back in March, Chance disclosed on Twitter the extent of his relationship with Apple, who doled out half a million dollars for exclusive release rights to Coloring Book.
He posted this on Twitter:
The Be Encouraged Tour is slated to continue throughout the rest of this year, wrapping up October 3 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
