Anita Baker Thanks Chance The Rapper For Helping Her Get Her Masters

While performing at a recent show at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, The Legendary Anita Baker acknowledged a special audience member.


Baker announced,

“Would you guys say hello to a friend of mine by way of [the] music industry, by way of helping me get a hold and ownership of my master records, Mister Chance The Rapper is right there,”



Chance The Rapper tweeted

“I saw one of THE greatest performances of my LIFETIME last night! Thank you so much @IAMANITABAKER for being an inspiration and an icon to so many of US,” Chance tweeted.

Anita Baker responded in a tweet,

Had no idea you would be in our Midst. Such a nice Surprise. Brought Tears, to my eyes. Hope Ms. Essence enjoyed her Birthday ABXO

Baker told her many fans not to stream or purchase any of her music from the Elektra Records label due to the master recordings dispute.

After winning the dispute she tweeted,

“All My Children Are Coming Home. Catalog. Impossible Things Happen… Every. Single. Day. Gratefully,” read the tweet, which featured an image of her first five albums, 1983’s “The Songstress,” 1986’s “Rapture,” 1988’s “Giving You The Best That I Got,” 1990’s “Compositions,” and 1994’s “Rhythm of Love.”
