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)

Chance The Rapper Reveals Details of His Exclusive Deal With Apple Music

By Shaun M

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)

Wifisfuneral Signs With Interscope/Alamo Records

By Trevor Smith

Wifisfuneral is having a pretty great time at SXSW. The Palm Beach rapper has signed a deal with Interscope and Alamo Records at SXSW, according to a report from XXL. The signing was later confirmed on Wifisfuneral's Instagram.

The 19-year-old emcee, who released his When Hell Falls mixtape in January, shared some celebratory words on Twitter Friday. "Bro I'm about to be 20 and all this shit happening to me," he wrote. "If you hating thank you. Because you only motivate me to prove you wrong."

We had a conversation with Wifisfuneral last September in which we discussed adolescent rebellion, getting to meet Earl Sweatshirt, and the making of his project Black Heart Revenge. (Read More)

Snoop Dogg Announces New Album 'Neva Left' Coming In May

By Carver Low

A few days ago, Snoop Dogg hopped on Instagram to show off some new music. He captioned the post “Neva left new Snoop Dogg coming soon the album.” Leave it to Snoop to make the most innocuous album announcement of all time. Now Snoop is down in Austin for South By Southwest, and he decided to share the month of the album’s release.

Despite being a seasoned 45 years old, nothing seems to be slowing the Long Beach emcee down. He released Coolaid last year, and is apparently going to release Neva Left less than a year after that album. He also released a collaborative album with his Dogg Pound brother Daz Dillinger that was slept on by way too many people.

Based on the snippet in Snoop’s first video, this will be a great album. Listen below, are y’all ready for another Snoop album? (Read More)
