For his Be Encouraged tour, Chance The Rapper -- a noted, Grammy-winning independent artist -- took aim at major labels with LED content at each show. 

Among the labels he mocked were Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment, Atlantic Records, Def Jam Records and Epic Records, which he reimagined as "Can't Do Math Entertainment," "A Titanic Records," "Don't Join Recordings," and "Eclick" using their logos. 

On Thursday (June 22), Chano apologized to Dre for including Aftermath in the satire, because of "His work with Beats, Compton Schools and artist like Kendrick, Game, Eminem, .Paak, 50 NWA and others is unmatched and how i inspire to be." 

He continued, "Once again Sorry to Dre, all the artists/producers at Aftermath and all the other folk trying to make a difference in music that I belittled."
