Spotify decided to rescind their new policy over hateful content when they basically pulled R. Kelly and XXXTentacion's music from their playlists. About a week ago, the CEO says it was rolled out the wrong way and according to The Rolling Stone, their policy is now dead. Was it really right for them to censor the artists, especially when certain things hadn't been proven about the artists? Well that censorship bothered a lot of artist, including Kendrick Lamar and TDE's CEO, Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith. He basically let the streaming site know that he would pull TDE's artist and music from Spotify's stream. Top Dawg told Billboard that he reached out to Spotify's global head of creator services and express how he felt about censorship. He didn't think it was fair how the service picked out and on certain genres, but they picked on the hip hop culture. After speaking with a few other top heads in the game, Spotify's founder and CEO, Daniel Ek, who admitted things didn't go as planned and that the policy wasn't well-thought out. Well that was a short-lived policy. Check out Spotify's latest update on the policy HERE.
