Budding Film Critic Chance The Rapper Takes Shots At Rotten Tomatoes

Chance The Rapper wears many hats as an artist, activist, and entrepreneur. Apparently, the Chicago native is also a budding film critic and took to Twitter to effectively roast movie review site Rotten Tomatoes for what he felt was a terrible ranking. 

Chano posted on Friday morning that he was taking in the film The House starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, and couldn’t fathom why the site gave it just 17 percent.

Yesterday I watched a movie that I never heard . It had a 17% on @RottenTomatoes … it was funny as fuck. Wtf @RottenTomatoes,” Chance tweeted.

Chance then went in on Bulworth, which earned a 75 percent ranking. “Nah but y’all gave this shitty racist unfunny fucked up ego trip a movie a SEVENTY FIVE?!?!” Chance added.

In the end, Chance Rotten Tomatoes rant was just him having a little fun. We’ve collected the tweets for viewing below and on the following pages.

Deadmau5 & Attlas talk about their collab, 'Bad At Titles'

It’s no secret that ’s home studio is somewhat a Disneyland for music production, outfitted with tools the highest quality, and is notably the birth site some the ’s most celebrated work. In a recent interview with Mixmag, deadmau5 and  discussed working together in the studio to produce their collaboration “.”

Facilitated in part by their proximity — “I was living down the road from Joel (Deadmau5) at the time” — and additionally by Link, a new feature in Ableton 9 that enables producers to link machines, propelling a remote collaboration to emerge as a single session.

“There were a couple times where I would step back and he would mix my parts in. Certain moments I was really learning what kinds plug-ins he uses and what’s on his master channel,” Attlas noted the experience, not failing to express the expedited quality the track’s production process: “Then all a sudden we’re printing a master and having dinner listening to the new track.”

Delving deeper into the technical aspects the song’s production, Deadmau5 observes that the pair used a Moog Voyager on “something” in the single, but otherwise, much the production was “in the box” — that is, on the computer as opposed to analog.

When it came down to in studio challenges, Attlas found working with Deadmau5 to be a mind over matter experience: “The challenge was to not be intimidated by working with someone with Joel’s musical reputation, but I knew if I could get my head around that it would just be two guys having fun making music, and something great would happen.”

And “something great” indeed did happen, even if Attlas maintains that he’s “bad at titles,” a comment made in the naming process that would later, as we all know, become the song’s namesake.
