Chance the Rapper performed ‘No Problems’ with Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz on Ellen, using the backdrop of a “Generic Records” company board meeting, which they promptly tear up the way Chance keeps his career independent and in his own control, as he discusses below with Ellen.
Lil Wayne also referenced the recent US Olympic debacle with the new line “And if that label try to stop me/ I’m goin let ’em rob me / Yeah, right, like Ryan Lochte.”
Coloring Book, Chance’s latest free album has grown to be one of my favourites of 2016.
