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.
