Chance The Rapper AKA Superhero Who Saved SoundCloud
People are calling Chance The Rapper a hero for saving SoundCloud. The Chicago native posted a cryptic tweet today amid reports that the popular music streaming service only has enough money to survive the next 50 days. After telling fans that he was "working on the SoundCloud thing," Chance, 24, tweeted,
"Just had a very fruitful call with [SoundCloud cofounder] Alex Ljung. @SoundCloud is here to stay."
This is the same platform that helped Chance become what he is today. He is an example of an artists who grew his career on SoundCloud, it's only right he felt the need to contact CEO Alexander Ljung. The three-time Grammy winner also asked fans to shout-out the music they discovered on SoundCloud through the years.
"@ an artist who you wouldn't know if not for SoundCloud," he wrote. "Now link me to a song on @SoundCloud that you swear you're responsible for like atleast a thousand plays."
So far representatives for Chance and SoundCloud both were not available for any comments from the press. That must have been a very interesting conversation, well it's good news that SoundCloud is here to stay, now the future rappers and singers out there have another Chance, at making it big. You see what I did there? haha.
