On a few of his tour dates , Chicago Native, Chance The Rapper used a few of his stops to throw a little shade at major record labels. Today, He went on a brief twitter rant to sincerely apologize to Dr. Dre and Aftermath records. Addressing the issue, he tweeted that he satirized the label After Math by calling it “Cant Do Math Entertainment” during shows months back.
First he tweeted, “I want to formally apologize to Dr Dre, and all of Aftermath for publicly disrespecting their hard work and contributions to music,”. He then followed the tweet with, “When I went on the Be Encouraged tour I made LED content to satirize and degrade major labels. I made the mistake of including Imprints which not only dulled my overall point of trying to uplift artist… But also singled out artist-owned ventures that have only worked to progress the culture”.
Despite the brief social media PSA, Chano believes major record labels try to cheat artists out of their money, hence his Aftermath diss.
With Aftermath being one of the biggest imprints, Dre is one of hip-hop’s wealthiest men. He founded his own record label in 1996 and introduced the world to rappers like Eminem and 50 Cent. Chance is all about showing rappers that they can control their own destiny which is why he’s issuing an apology to the West Coast Icon. Chance is won a Grammy for a project that was issued without sale.
