Chance the Rapper has spoken out publicly on his deal with Apple revealing how much the company paid him for a two week exclusive of Coloring Book.

Here's the series of Tweets he sent out today:

I never felt the need to correct folks on my relationship with @apple but now that more people have tried to discredit my independence..

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

think artist can gain a lot from the streaming wars as long as they remain in control of their own product.

I just wanna remain transparent. Folks out there without a deal need to know they're doing everything right just keep at it.

If you come across oprtunities to work with good people, pick up cash and keep your integrity I say Do It

Apple frequently uses exclusives bring in new subscribers to its Apple Music service; however, this is the first time an artist has spoken out about how much they've been paid for those exclusive rights.

Rap only sounds funny with thug life videos, just listen to the 'lyrics' it's got... Have a better taste next time, Apple.
