Chance the Rapper has been making history by simply being true to himself , staying independent, and loving God. Not only has his album The Coloring Book made history by making it onto the Billboard 200 sales chart, debuting at No. 8 on just steaming alone (which means it was a free album), he also took home not 1 but 3 Grammy’s during last weeks ceremony for best new artist, best rap performance, and best rap album.
Now the record labels want in and are offering him Millions of dollars to sign with them but Lil Chano isn’t with it. According to The New York Post “Every label is still trying to get him. He’s making too much on his own…He was turning down 5 million advances before, and now its like 10 million.” The source added “He may do something with apple, but not a label per se…He is going to remain independent.”
If you think chance is crazy for turning down all that money and giving away albums for free, don’t fret he makes a killing off of appearances , touring, and merchandise. Even if he wasn’t, it really wouldn’t matter because money has never been the driving force for him. Its always been about the music, being free, and making a difference which he defiantly is.
