Chance the Rapper is reportedly turning down some very generous record label offers after he achieved a historic win at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
The New York times reports that the Chicago MC has turned down offers worth up to $10 million, after he beat Drake and Kanye West to win the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.
An insider allegedly told the Post: “Every label is still trying to get him. He’s making too much on his own… He was turning down $5 million advances before, and now it’s like $10 million.”
Despite not having a record deal, Chance’s streaming-only album Coloring Book scooped Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance and Best New Artist at the Grammys ceremony.
In an interview with Vanity Fair he explained that he made his money from “touring and selling merchandise… and I honestly believe if you put effort into something and you execute properly, you don’t neccessarily have to go through the traditional ways”.
