The 24-year-old musician and Young Thug dropped "Big B's" on the site, just days after the company was forced to lay off nearly 40 percent of its staff. "The music you love on SoundCloud isn't going away, the music you shared or uploaded isn't going away, because SoundCloud is not going away".

So Soundcloud does appear to be working through its financial troubles, and Chance's support is doing wonders for its image in the public eye. "And it's just that, noise", said Alex Ljung, the company's co-founder and CEO, in a blog post - days after letting go of 40 per cent of its workforce and closing down its London and San Francisco offices. He also tweeted saying "Just had a very fruitful call with Alex Ljung". Your music is safe. Exiting team members wanted to know why they weren't warned, while those who survived the cuts wanted assurance that the cost reductions would keep the company afloat for the long-run. If you're hosting and sharing music, podcasts or other content from SoundCloud, you should start thinking about a Plan B, as you should for all cloud services - especially free ones.
