Nobody in the music industry is safe from backlash and conflict. J.U.S.T.I.C.E League reignited their feud with Chance the Rapper over the weekend, calling out the Chicago rapper on skipping payments, after discovering he planned to help save SoundCloud, which has become somewhat of a mecca for up-and-coming artists.
A member of the team sent out of a series of tweets claiming Chance used their work without compensation. The same claims were made last year after the group announced the rapper used their beats in his song “Coco Butter Kisses” from his 2013 mixtape “Acid Rap.”
The Twitter rant lasted for a number of hours, and it was unclear which members of the trio were tweeting, but they continued their tweet storm regardless of backlash. But the group made it clear that their problem was not with “Coco Butter Kisses” this time around. Instead it was about Chance’s hit song “No Problems.”
The group also claimed to have spoken to the rapper amidst the drama online, mockingly calling him a “man of God.”
Chance did respond to the allegations, admitting to having spoken to the trio, but claims all payments were made to the “actual producer” of the song.
This part is true. But the money I "owe" you, I paid to the actual producer who is suing you currently to get out of that slave deal. https://t.co/8Vl8fC3lJ7
