Kendrick Lamar Threatened To Pull His Music From Spotify Over XXXTentacion Ban

By HHL JT

XXXTentacion's music has been returned to Spotify's playlists after being banned under the streaming company's new hate content and hateful conduct policy.

The reversal happened after representatives for several artists -- including Kendrick Lamar -- called Spotify Chief Executive Officer Daniel Ek and head of artist relations Troy Carter and threatened to pull their clients' music from Spotify if the policy wasn't reconsidered. 

TDE President Punch had already made his opinion of Spotify's hate content and hateful conduct policy known.

Do you think Spotify learned its lesson, or will there be more attempts to remove the music of artists who've been accused or convicted of illegal behavior?
