(AllHipHop News) Last month, Chance The Rapper debuted a new song while performing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Singer Daniel Caesar assisted Chano on the tune that was created 48 hours prior to their appearance on CBS.
Emcee-turned-cultural critic Joe Budden was not a fan of the collaboration. The Everyday Struggle pundit slammed the set for being "too positive."
"What the f-ck is Chance doing?" questioned Budden. "What is this style of music? Is this like Polk music? What the f-ck are these two n-ggas doing? Chance gotta stop."
That moment quickly spread across social media, and Chance eventually became aware of what was said on Everyday Struggle. The Grammy winner addressed Budden's critique during an interview with RobynNealTV.
"I did a song, and then I was getting hit up all over the internet because someone didn’t like it, this talk show host, Joe Budden. I don’t get upset about stuff like that because that’s just what music is," said Chance. "You don’t always have to have songs that everybody likes. You don't have to always make music that's the contemporary best or better than what's around or fit into what's around. You can just make music, and if you’re confident enough, you'll probably get to perform it on late night."
The Coloring Book creator added, "There’s this idea that things have to move the culture forward and you have to do things for the culture. But it's like, 'N-gga, I am the culture.'"
Chance also stated, 'I f-ck with Joe Budden." In addition, the 24-year-old entertainer made it clear he understands the "Pump It Up" performer is being paid to provide his thoughts on things happening in Hip Hop in order to spark conversations around certain topics.
