Chance The Rapper Apologizes to Dr. Dre
You don’t want no prooooblems, big fella!
Chance The Rapper took to the streets of Twitter on Thursday to issue public apology to Dr. Dre for disrespecting Aftermath.
During his Be Encouraged Tour, back in April, Chance fired shots at several record labels while performing “No Problems.”
Check out the video below in case you missed it.
Now, the 3-time Grammy Award-winning rapper is changing his tune when it comes to Dr. Dre.
Chance praised Dre as “a premier example of creating space for wealth and ownership in an industry designed for creatives to be the foot soldiers.”
He went on to admit, “I set out to empower and I completely missed the ball and I know that now.”
Read Chance’s full apology below.
I want to formally apologize to Dr Dre, and all of Aftermath for publicly disrespecting their hard work and contributions to music.
When I went on the Be Encouraged tour I made LED content to satirize and degrade major labels.
I made the mistake of including Imprints which not only dulled my overall point of trying to uplift artist…But also singled out artist-owned ventures that have only worked to progress the culture
Dre is a premier example of creating space for wealth and ownership in an industry designed for creatives to be the foot soldiers
His work with Beats, Compton Schools and artist like Kendrick, Game, Eminem, .Paak, 50 NWA and others is unmatched and how i inspire to be
I set out to empower and I completely missed the ball and I know that now
Once again Sorry to Dre, all the artists/producers at Aftermath and all the other folk trying to make a difference in music that I belittled
I respect Chance The Rapper for acknowledging his error in judgement and being man enough to publicly apologize to Dre.
