Chance The Rapper and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League Argue Over “No Problems” Payment

Chance The Rapper’s weekend has been busy. Hectic, even. After teaming with Soundcloud CEO Alex Ljung to help ‘save’ the apparently struggling platform, the Chicago star joined with Young Thug to drop a new record, “Big B’s,” streaming exclusively on the platform—the cherry on top, if you will. Just 24 hours later, with the rest of the industry still marveling in a fairly bizarre sequence of events, Chance took to his Twitter to address a separate issue: allegations made by popular production crew J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, who accused Chance of failing to pay for instrumental work.

Initially, the lengthy Twitter rant posted by the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League account—as of the time of this writing, it’s unclear which member was responsible—had little to do with a personal discrepancy with Chance. Rather, it was critical of the “No Problems” rapper’s frantic support of the platform, and echoed murmurs that despite his perception that assisting Soundcloud was a for-the-people cause, Chance had pivoted and begun aiding the very ‘big business’ models he’d campaigned against.

Eventually, the conversation shifted to payment, and whether Chance was ‘still in the habit’ of blowing producers off. A past Chance collaborator—the producer Nascent—denied that notion in a since-deleted tweet, leading to the League’s claim that they were still awaiting payment for a record. At the time, the song in question wasn’t stated, but that was clarified to be “No Problems” on Sunday. After firing off several tweets concerning the matter, including a jab that mentioned Chance’s child support agreement, the crew drew a response from the rapper, who’d apparently already made contact offline. In his response, he iterated that payment was indeed made—but to a producer “suing” to free himself from a J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League “slave deal.”

Production duo BrassTracks is credited with “No Problems,” but former J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League member Cam O’bi—who has distanced himself from his ex-crew in recent years—is credited as a writer on the song, which is likely what the controversy is hinged on.

This isn’t the first time J.U.S.T.I.C.E League has tussled with Chance online over unpaid fees. Last year, League member Rook claimed in an interview that Chance also owes them for using one of their beats on Acid Rap.
