Chance The Rapper has always been proud of his independent status, but the “Coloring Book” rapper took the hate for major record labels one step further when he dissed a number of companies during a recent concert.

On the first stop of his Be Encouraged tour in San Diego, California, Chance used part of his performance of “No Problem” to throw some shade at a few famous record labels. After rapping, “If one more label try to stop me / It’s gon be some dreadheads… in your lobby,” a large screen behind the rapper flashed the logos of labels but with different names.

The Grammy-winning artist turned Sony into Phony, Atlantic to A Titanic, Virgin to Villain, Motown to No Crown and Def Jam Recordings to Don’t Join Recordings. Chance The Rapper also took shots at Aftermath Entertainment, calling it Can’t Do Math Entertainment as well as changing the name of Universal to Undiverse.

While Chance remains unsigned, the rapper did come out to clear the air about an exclusive deal he signed with Apple Music. In March, it was revealed the rapper signed a deal with Apple Music for his album “Coloring Book,” but after some backlash from fans, the rapper took to Twitter to detail the deal.

“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,” he tweeted. “@apple gave me half a mil and a commercial to post ‘Coloring Book’ exclusively on applemusic for 2 weeks.”

According to Chance, after the two weeks were up, he was able to put his album on SoundCloud and offer the project for free. He added, “I needed the money and they’re all good people over there. I feel like if I didn’t clear it up people would keep trying to discredit all the work we did to make ‘Coloring Book’ what it became. I think artist can gain a lot from the streaming wars as long as they remain in control of their own product.”
