"Ranting" on twitter Thursday afternoon, J.U.S.T.I.C.E League claims they never received payment from Chance The Rapper for their work.
It appears Flying Lotus’ comments yesterday about producer’s rights have inspired another production clique to speak up as well. Earlier today, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League took to their twitter accounts to voice their frustration at the music industry, even calling out famed independent rapper Chance The Rapper in the process.
Unclear of which of the three members actually tweeted it (Rook, Colione or Bart), J.U.S.T.I.C.E League went a “rant” Thursday afternoon calling out artists for not wanting to pay the right amount of fees & giving due credit, specifically Chance The Rapper. Then when producers, Nascent & Jake One responded to the tweet, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League made it clear that they’ve actually never been paid for their work by the Chicago rapper.
“Good to hear, we still waiting,” a response to Nascent read. “idk if u did or not. Hopefully lol. But I know on OUR end what happened,” the League wrote in another at Jake One (see below).
Adding to it all, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. later touched on the new streaming services, which they say doesn’t pay out royalties, as well as racism in the industry, calling out record labels for giving “white artists trips to Monaco, and black artist’s bottles of Hennessy and weed.”
