Chance The Rapper becomes first black lyricist to win Best New Artist at the Grammys in 18 years


Chance The Rapper has become the first black Hip-Hop heavy-hitter to be dubbed the Best New Artist by the Recording Academy in nearly 20 years. 
On Sunday, the 23-year-old “Juke Jam” mastermind broke the chains that have kept up and coming rap representatives out of Grammy greatness since 1999 when “That Thing” songstress, Lauryn Hill, earned the award for being the most lit new musician of that year.

During his acceptance speech–which The Grammys messily tried to cut short with their GTFOH music– Chance gave glory to God for showering him with blessings and shed light on what being an independent artist truly means …
“Oh, I’m going to talk. You all can play the music if you want,” the Chicago native said. “I know people think that independence means you do it by yourself, but independence means freedom. I do it with these folks right here. Glory be to God! I claim the victory in the name of the lord! Let’s go!”



Later, Chano–who took home the Best Rap Performance Grammy for “No Problem,” during the awards ceremony’s pre-show– beat out the likes of Kanye West and Drake for Best Rap Album with his Coloring Book mixtape, before slaying the stage with an earth-shattering performance alongside gospel G.O.A.Ts Tamala Mann and Kirk Franklin.
