Chance the Rapper explains why more Artists should be Independent

Chance the Rapper, fresh off the success and critical acclaim his latest project “Coloring Book” received, feels other artists should follow his footsteps.

Chance the Rapper had a detailed interview with Complex on a range of topics. During the interview with Complex, Chance spoke about being a father, collaborations with Kanye West, being an independent artists and plans for his next album.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

On being unsigned and independent:

“I need more artists to do it themselves. I try and stress this as often as possible…you’re the upper management. You’re the creative, you are the last decision maker, and you don’t ever have to feel compromised.”

On possibly selling his next album:

“I kinda hate the fact that I can’t chart, really… The way they have the streaming shit set up is weak as f***….It’s like 1,500 or 1,700 streams is the equivalent to one unit, and that’s just unfair. Nobody listens to their songs 1,700 times when they buy it — f*** outta here!”
