CHANCE THE RAPPER WINS BEST NEW ARTIST GRAMMY
Call him Chance the Grammy-winning Rapper.
Lil Chano from 79th took home the highly-coveted Best New Artist award during
the 59th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 12).
Jennifer Lopez presented the award to Chance, who offered a message of gratitude
for his “Blessings.”
“Glory be to God,” he said, sporting his trademark “3” cap. “I claim this victory in the name
of the Lord. I want to thank God for my mother, my father, who’ve supported me since I was
young. For Kiersten, Kensley, all of Chicago, and I want to thank God for putting amazing
people in my life.”
As the wrap-up music began playing, Chance continued. “I’m gonna talk,” he said. “Y’all can play
the music if you want…I want to thank God for my team. People think that independence means
you do it by yourself, but independence means freedom.”
It was the second gramophone of the night for Chance, who scored seven overall nominations.
During the pre-show telecast, The Rapper took home his first Grammy ever Best Rap Performance
trophy for his Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz-assisted “No Problem” banger.
That’s not all. The Coloring Book superstar is also slated to hit the stage with Kirk Franklin during
this evening’s Grammy telecast.
