Chance the Rapper’s “Acid Rap” Is So Popular It’s On The Billboard Even It’s Free


Last week, Chance the rapper‘s Acid Rap sold 1,000 copies and landed 63rd on Billboard’s Top R & B / Hip-Hop Albums chart. Good for him! Wait, isn’t this album free? Wait a minute! It’s free and has been since April 30.

According to Billboard, someone sold the mixtape in physical and digital copies on retailers like Amazon and iTunes. Chance representatives claimed they had no knowledge, gave no authorization and received no compensation for the sales.

Although digital versions have recently been pulled from retailers, the physical versions are still sold by a company called Mtc.

“I’ve never heard of Mtc, so it took us by surprise,” Chance director Patrick Corcoran told Billboard. “But when I first saw him, I showed Chance, and his lawyers are trying to stop him.”

Hopefully they can stop it before someone else gets rich from their hard work. In the meantime, if you are planning to buy Acid Rap, no. Just download it for free right here on Chance’s website.
