This year has been a productive year thus far for our friend Chance The Rapper, He was nominated for seven Grammys and won three of the seven awards, one of them was for best new artist. Chance gave his acceptance speech with manager Pat Corcoran and friend Peter CottonTale by his side, during his speech he made sure to give recognition to the almighty himself stating “Glory be to God. I claim this victory in the name of the Lord,”. Chance made history as he is the first ever artist to be nominated for (and win) a Grammy because of a streamed album, he also stated that he still has no plans of signing to a label though he has had plenty of offers, for him independent means freedom.
Drake was also nominated for and won an award this past Sunday for Best Rap/Song Collaboration and Best Rap Song for “Hotline Bling“, though it had been made clear weeks before hand Drake would not be attending this years Grammys ceremony due to his tour in the UK. Drake did go out of his way to show that he was still watching the Grammys by congratulating Chance via text message and a post on Instagram stating”I am in Manchester having a drink for you broski,” what a good friend !
Below is a clip with somethings that you should have been on the lookout for while watching the Grammys Sunday.
