In 2013 many of us heard Chance the Rapper for the first time with his mixtape Acid Rap. His unique vocals and unconventional use of instruments made him an internet success. 4 years later and he is winning 2 Grammy’s. The one we expected was “Best New Artist” following a year of performances at the White House, features and production credits on the years biggest album and an international tour. But even Chance himself was surprised to win “Best Rap Album”. In a category with Drake & Kanye West, Coloring Book won out.
As well as winning 2 Grammy’s, Chance had one of the best performances of the night. His blend of “How Great” & “Blessings” was loud, powerful and heartfelt.
So how does Chance follow up the “Best Rap Album” in 2017?
