Chance the Rapper Wins Best New Artist Grammy

  /  02.12.2017

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.
