Chance the Rapper Rejected McDonald's Super Bowl Ad Due to Payment Dispute

The 'Coloring Book' rapper reveals he turned down McDonald's in the past, claiming they 'played with the money' when they offered him to appear in a Super Bowl ad.

AceShowbiz - Chance the Rapper almost starred in a McDonald's Super Bowl ad, but issues regarding payment forced him away from the project.

Bosses at the restaurant chain previously partnered with Travis Scott for a commercial campaign and are now working with Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin.

However, taking to Twitter, Chance, real name Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, warned other talents against working with officials at the eatery, recalling he was in line to star in a coveted Super Bowl advertisement but turned down an offer over a money dispute.

His revelation came as designer Joe Freshgoods, who previously collaborated with McDonald's for a capsule collection, first weighed in on the Balvin collaboration on Twitter.

When one user responded to the news, writing, "Now J Balvin x McDonald's got 1.? @JoeFreshgoods was wayyyy ahead of time," Freshgoods replied, "They just used me to see if it could work and I proved it could."

Inserting himself into the conversation, Chance tweeted, "I was supposed to do a superbowl commercial with (McDonald's)... They played wit the money and when I said no, they hired a fake me."

While he didn't specify the year he was supposed to be involved, fans speculated he was referring to a 2017 McDonald's Super Bowl ad, in which a rapper makes an appearance and rhymes about a Big Mac.

According to Complex, Chance had previously tweeted to McDonald's that they should do business in 2014. Eventually, Chance did appear in a Super Bowl ad in 2019 - but for Doritos, alongside the Backstreet Boys.
