Chance The Rapper is in a dark place right now. The rapper claims that he feels like fans want him to commit suicide, now that his new album is flopping.
On paper - Chance's first week numbers look alright. The website HiitsDailyDouble says that he his expected to sell somewhere between 110,000 to 125,000 units and his album will debut as Number 1 this week.
But for a rapper that was once panned as the next big thing - those numbers are extremely disappointing. To put it in perspective, Tyler The Creator's new album - which is seen as a moderate success - sold 165,000 units in its first week.
According to Chance, he now feels pressure, from fans to commit suicide. The rapper told fans that he needed to "let some of these feelings [out] and that's what Twitter is for."
A quick look at the comments on Chance's page - shows that many fans are worried about his latest posts.
Here's what Chance posted on social media last night:
Chance then wrote that he appreciates everyone who reached out to share support. Before ending the thread with a joke about the one thing that he’s 100 percent sure of — that he loves his wife, something we all know very well by this point. See the full thread here.
According to reviewers, the album is eclectic, to say the least, featuring guests such as Death Cab for Cutie, Annie Lennox, CocoRosie, and Gucci Mane. Some fans, it would seem, are not impressed. So much so they have given Chance the impression they want him to kill himself.
