Chance the Rapper is beloved for his charitable donations, but one musician isn’t feeling the love because he claims the rapper stole one of his songs.
According to a lawsuit obtained by The Blast, Abdul Wali Muhammad wrote a song in 1979 called “Bridge Through Time.” He claims Chance took parts of his song without permission and used them in his song, “Windows.”
