Chance The Rapper‘s music may be free but his time comes at a premium. Check out some clips from his Beats 1 interview that is set to air Tuesday [May 24] afternoon at 1 p.m.

Following in the footsteps of Drake, Chance The Rapper put his latest album Coloring Book on Apple Music and will also do an interview on the platform with Zane Lowe.

The outspoken rapper had quite a bit to say about his stance on record labels, the recognition of free music by the Grammys and the Chicago music scene that birthed him.

The interview comes just weeks after he appeared on the cover of Complex magazine. Check out the clips below.

The full interview airs Tuesday at 1PM EDT/10AM PDT on Beats 1.

On Record Labels:

“I don’t agree with the way labels are set up. I don’t agree that anybody should sign 360 deals or sign away their publishing or take most of the infrastructure that’s included in a formal deal. But I’ve learned to not be like f*ck this company, f*ck that company, even though a lot of those people tried to make it really hard for me to release my projects.”

Chance has also stated that record labels blocked Big Sean from appearing on Coloring Book.
