J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League Accuse Chance The Rapper of Failing to Pay for “No Problems” Beat, Rapper Responds
Update: (July 16, 1:25 p.m. EST)
J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League has clarified that the song they have a grievance over is the Grammy-winning Coloring Book track, "No Problem" and not "Cocoa Butter Kisses" as initially reported. "No Problem" was produced by Brasstracks. "To be clear. Our grievance is not about a mixtape record, it’s about 'No problems' a hit record that we own publishing and production on," JL tweeted.
The beat makers seemed to be pissed when they saw news that Chance plans on trying to save SoundCloud. And it opened up a whole can of worms.
"Of course Chance wants to save the free music business model. That’s how he got on by NOT paying," one tweet posted to the producers' Twitter feed read.
This kicked off a rant against the rapper that lasted for hours. "Everybody we helped on their way up gave us hit records, but we can’t get ONE penny from homie? Not even a thanks? Is that right and just?...The thing is @chancetherapper normalized the free business model. Don’t pay (or pay minimal) for creation, post on SC and not pay royalties," J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League wrote.
It is unclear which producer out the production trio of Rook, Colione and Bart was tweeting but they continued to rail against the rapper, even bringing up his family and the situation with Dr. Dre. The production outfit claim they were never paid for "Cocoa Butter Kisses," a track off Chance's Acid Rap mixtape that was co-produced by Cam and Peter Cottontale.
Chance offered a small response during the tirade posting, "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." But the production team definitely wasn't trying to hear it.
This isn't the first time the League has made similar claims about Chano. Last month, they called him out during a Twitter discussion out producers not getting their just due. “Y u think we aint been working with ur favorite rappers lately? I doubt that @chancetherapper even pays producers,” they posted.
