The artist landed three gongs at last night's ceremony.
Chance the Rapper seemed blind-sided by his triple victory at the 59th annual Grammy Awards over the weekend, especially with it being his first venture into the prestigious ceremony. Nonetheless, he made sure the audience knew that the win was one of his team and one of his faith.
Chance The Rapper is now a three-time Grammy winner
The hip hop star added three Grammys to his growing list of awards last night (February 12th 2017) including Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance for his song 'No Problem' featuring Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz and Best Rap Album for 'Coloring Book'.
As he was giving his acceptance speech for the Best New Artist award, the people behind the Grammy tech began playing music to encourage him to wrap it up, but he wasn't having any of it. 'I know a lot of times I talk about my independence and people think it has something to do with - Oh I'mma talk! Y'all can play the music if you want!' He joked.
He went on to talk about another figure who holds a very important place in Chance's heart. 'I wanna thank God for my team', he 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!'
Chance missed out on the award for Best Rap Song, which instead went to Drake's 'Hotline Bling', but it didn't seem like anything could dampen the rapper's three-time victory streak.
'Coloring Book' was the mixtape that brought Chance all the success on Sunday. Released back in 2016, it featured guests the likes of Kanye West, Young Thug, Francis and the Lights and Justin Bieber and was produced by such names as The Social Experiment, Lido and Kaytranada.
