David Crosby Disses Then (Kind Of) Extends The Olive Branch To Chance The Rapper In New Twitter Ad

first_imgRecently, Twitter launched a new ad campaign under the hashtag #SeeEverySide, which highlights Twitter’s unique ability to allow users to “see what’s happening from every point of view, all perspectives, every side. . . whether it be music, sports, news or entertainment.” While Twitter lets its users take in all perspectives on a subject (and in merely 140 characters to boot), I think we can all agree that everyone loves a happy ending. The social media platform has just released a new ad promoting #SeeEverySide, which stars Chance the Rapper using Twitter to outsource song requests.Chance The Rapper, Preservation Hall, George Porter Jr. Close Bonnaroo SuperJam With “Hey Ya”After throwing out a call asking fans to request songs, Chance the Rapper patiently waits as the answers flood in. As the video cuts to the broad range of folks requesting well-known numbers from Chance’s catalog, an unexpected face makes a cameo — none other than David Crosby. After a sea of “Cocoa Butter Kisses” and “Same Drugs,” Crosby offers Chance the ability to #SeeEverySide, suggesting that chance play “anything with real instruments.” His tweet is tongue-in-cheek, referencing Crosby’s savage 2015 comment via Twitter that “Rap isn’t music” (A comment spurred by the fan-sourced question: What are your feelings about CSN getting sampled over the years in rap music?).Chance The Rapper Inspires Chicago Bulls To Donate $1 Million To Chicago Public SchoolsHowever, fret not, in case anyone was worried that David Crosby and Chance are about to get into a Twitter feud on the same dramatic levels as the 45th President of the United States and Cher. Later in the video, Crosby reappears, offering an olive branch to the Grammy-winning rapper, later shooting out the text, “I could up your game” (along with a flirty winking emoji), which is still highly condescending coming from the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young namesake but at least slightly nicer in tone. You can check out the video for yourself below, and keep your eyes peeled for that Chance X Crosby collab in the future. [H/T Billboard]last_img
