Chance The Rapper Expands Rapper Radio Platform to Help More Artists Gain Airplay

"Our goal is to make radio an accessible platform."

Chance The Rapper's hit single "No Problem" reached No. 1 on the urban radio chart last November, but as an independent artist, he's well aware of the difficulties that many artists—especially independents—face in their quest to garner airplay.

With this in mind, the Chicago native has announced the expansion of his fan-centivized Rapper Radio platform, which serves as a direct connection between artist, fan and radio station.

"Our goal is to make radio an accessible platform for artists with the popularity, but not the necessary infrastructure to get spins," said Chance in a press release.

In addition to using Rapper Radio to help support his own singles ("All Night," "I'm The One"), Chance has opened up the platform for a number of artists, including Jidenna ("Bambi") and Linkin Park ("Heavy").

Leaderboards for top cities, fans and stations will also be added to the site, creating an interactive experience that will aim to motivate return visits and continued support.
