    Not to mention all those shitty “comedy” videos he had to scrub from the internet after he was found out

    They remove music because of its content on Spotify? This is the first time I've heard of that.

    They tried to do it before but they mainly went after black artists

    It would be cynical to say BOTDF's songs were pulled because he doesn't have a lobby, but there would be some truth to that too.

    After BOTDF, what non-rap/R&B artist has songs that are as bad / violent / mysogynist as BOTDF's? I'm not looking for anyone to do research on this if you don't already know, I'm seriously wondering if Spotify may be able to be persuaded to remove other artists under the same grounds. If not, this may just be a way for Spotify to gain some PR points by removing an artist that relatively few people were listening to and that no one but the BOTDF's possie would complain about.

    I think the thing that separates BOTDF is the target demographic being young kids/the fact that they’d most likely be popping up in playlists for young kids because of the algorithm

    I think for sure that one of the reasons it's taken off while someone xxxtentacion or R. Kelly is the lobby for these artists. Top Top Dawg's CEO threatened to pull all of TDE's material off of it if they didn't put xxx back up. That would have been a huge blow. I just wish Spotify would have some consistency with this.

    Consistency in capitalism? That'll be the day.

    Just to clarify Spotify were never going to fully pull X or R Kelly's music, they just weren't going to show up in curated playlists anymore

    And now since they’re targeting BOTDF for “content” people are now saying shit like “well half of hip hop is the same so why not remove them too.” Spotify is fucking awful at how they implement their policies.

    I really hope that marshmellow-head-wearing dicksplash can't collaborate with anyone worth a damn from here on out. Time for people to start putting their money where their mouth is as regards all this accountability shit. This isn't on anyone in CHVRCHES because they had no way of knowing this was his next move - good to see them calling him out - it's on the next artist he wants to collaborate with.
