Meanwhile, Chance The Rapper is currently caught up in a lawsuit with his former manager. As revealed over the weekend, Pat Corcoran – aka Pat The Manager – is suing the Chicago rapper for $3million (£2.2m) in unpaid commissions. In response to the suit, Chance’s team say they are “grossly offended” by the accusations.

“Mr. Corcoran has filed a suit for allegedly unpaid commissions,” a representative for the rapper told Pitchfork in response. “In fact, Mr. Corcoran has been paid all of the commissions to which he is legally entitled.
