Chance The Rapper is an independent artist.

Or is he?

Chance’s independence has been one of the biggest questions swirling around the rapper. Because, while yes, Chance isn’t signed to a record label (we think) he does have some kind of deal or working relationship with Apple, one of the biggest companies in the world.

Chance released his last project, Coloring Book, as an exclusive on Apple Music for two weeks, before he put it on his Soundcloud. There are many Chance Truthers out there, one being rapper Joe Budden, who has frequently talked about this subject many times on his show, I’ll Name This Podcast Later.

So Chance made efforts to put the murmurs to rest. In a series of tweets, the Chicago rapper revealed the details of his deal with Apple.

Look at what Chance said:

We’re sure that this will set off a new series of debates.
