“My partnership with the app wasn’t about the single ["Revenge"], it was about me wanting to reach out to those obscure kids that I can’t reach out to on any other social media,” he said to Billboard. The rapper recently dropped "Revenge" featuring Ariel Pink last week.

We’re out here scouting emerging artists, talents looking for their big break.”
“This open call challenge is a fantastic opportunity for Clapit users to get real feedback on their work from a musical icon – and one will be spending a day in New York City with Theophilus in the studio,” Paul Bedwell, Clapit co-founder and CEO adds. Co-founder and CMO MaryJane Bulseco agrees, “These are the kind of opportunities emerging talent are looking for, along with the support of a community – and this is what we offer on Clapit.”
