Last week, Lee screened Chi-Raq in Evanston, Il, and once again took a swipe at Chance. According to XXL, he said “Chance The Rapper’s a fraud. Straight-up fraud. He puts himself up as a speaker of the people, but that means you have to put truths that you see. That doesn’t mean you can pick and choose what you talk about.”

Chance caught wind, and aired Spike out on Twitter.

Chance also claimed to have incriminating audio of Spike:
