AceShowbiz - Chance the Rapper can't stand the heat after his debut album "The Big Day" received heavy criticisms on Twitter. The Grammy Award-winning artist admits the pressure is too high that he feels the push to kill himself.
The 26-year-old star took to Twitter on Monday, August 5 to let out some of the pressure, resulting in a long thread of concerning messages that hinted at his emotional distress. "I'm getting this crazy feeling that people want me to kill myself," he first posted.
He added, "That's not my vibe at all, but i feel the push. And I feel like even more than that, some people want me to feel ashamed." Confessing to his struggle to deal with negative comments, the "No Problem" hitmaker said, "Shame is heavy yo. And feeling shame for something that you were once prideful about is super heavy."
Chance went on talking about why music is so important to him. "What's really weird is that music is the number one thing that influences how I feel on the daily. Like can really push me to one side or the other. And thats super raw to me. Cause I'm sure there's other people that get their fuel from music," he shared.
He also thanked those who keep sending him supportive messages, before concluding his series of tweets with a love declaration to his wife. "And the number one thing thats been on my heart and has been reaffirmed in the last week that I'm now 100% sure of is.. That I LOVE my wife," he wrote.
Following his admission about his suicidal thoughts, some Twitter users still don't show sympathy and think that Chance overreacted to those criticisms about his new album. "Bro you're trippin. Just make a better album," one tactlessly wrote.
"bro you just made a bad album. you're rich calm down," another similarly told Chance, while one other added, "It's not that serious bro we just want non camp counselor music." Someone else honestly told Chance, "It's a polarizing album. A lot of people hate it, a lot of people love it, but no one wants you to kill yourself," while one other said, "bro you need to learn how to take some constructive criticism if you're gonna continue being an artist."
But Chance's fans agreed that the negative comments on his music were just too much. "FOR THE PEOPLE WHO KEEP SAYING 'ITS OK MAN JUST LEARN FROM IT & MAKE A BETTER ALBUM' YOU ARE THE PROBLEM," one hit back at the critics. "TO CHANCE, THIS WAS THE BETTER ALBUM. & FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME, THIS WAS THE BETTER ALBUM AS WELL. SOME PEOPLE LIKE THIS TYPE OF MUSIC....WHY ARE YALL SO QUICK TO HATE? STOP."
Another added, "This isn't gonna be seen by anyone but Chance's music is his s**t. Its not influenced by record labels or anything it's what he wants to release and what he's feeling if you don't like certain stuff don't listen to it lol. Chance doesn't deserve this he's just doin him."
Some others assured him that they didn't want him to kill himself. "Wtf HELL NO!!! Keep making the music YOU wanna make, f**k what me or anyone else says PLEASE!" one wrote, while another chimed in, "Praying for your mental health Chance!!! Keep your head up high God got you!!"
