By Kevin Goddard

It looks like Post Malone’s single “Congratulations” with Quavo just surpassed the 1 million units sold mark, earning himself a new platinum record. To celebrate the good news, Post Malone decided to tease fans of his long awaited Beerbongs & Bentleys project, which has been in the works since December, by sharing its cover art Thursday night.

Revealed on twitter, Post didn’t say anything else about the project, like when it’ll be dropping or features, but hopefully this revealing is indication that we’re getting closer to its release.

In addition, look for Post to take the stage on Late Night with Seth Meyers tonight along with Metro Boomin and Quavo to perform "Congratulations." We'll keep you posted with footage of that once it surfaces. (Read More)

Chance The Rapper Made Fortune's World's Greatest Leaders List

By Shaun M

Fortune Magazine shared their annual list of the world's greatest leaders and familiar faces found their way on top. Chance The Rapper, now a leading advocate for the improvement of Chicago public schools (CPS) is number 46 on their list.

The 23-year-old recently donated a cool million to CPS after a fruitless meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner who asked where he would find the funds. Fortune reports that Chano's donation will go to arts and after-school programs "and even set off a chain reaction, with Seattle Seahawk Michael Bennett inspired to donate his endorsement money to worthy causes."

The Grammy-winning artist has been at the forefront of the movement to reduce gun violence in his hometown. He often performs free concerts in Chicago to raise funds and awareness. HipHopDX reports that last year, he helped raise over $100,000 for the Warmest Winter campaign. And in 2015, he assisted in donating $100,000 again to CPS as part of the city’s Get Schooled, Get Connected Challenge. (Read More)

Though he's remained an independent recording artist, critics have pointed out that Chance The Rapper had signed an exclusive deal with Apple Music to release Coloring Book. Chano took to Twitter to reveal why his Grammy-winning record was only available through the streaming giant for the first two weeks after it dropped.

"I wanna clear things up. @apple gave me half a mil and a commercial to post Coloring Book exclusively on applemusic for 2 weeks. That was the extent of my deal, after 2 weeks it was on SoundCloud for free. I needed the money and they’re all good people over there. I feel like if I didnt clear it up people would keep trying to discredit all the work we did to make Coloring Book what it became." (Read More)
