Chance the Rapper took home 3 Grammy Awards in his debut as a Grammy nominated artist this year. There is no doubt that he is defying the odds with his skyrocketing career as a contemporary rapper and recording artist in today’s market.
Chance the Rapper is more than a Grammy Award winning rapper. He is the new face of community leadership engaging his audience of youth and adults in his native city of Chicago. At a recent honorary gala ”A Night of 100 Stars” in Chicago, Chance the Rapper announced that he is officially donating his Grammy Award for “Best Streaming Album” to Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African American History.
Chance, aka Chancellor Bennett, is seeking ways to create hope in the minds of youth in disadvantaged communities particularly on Chicago’s south side. As a Chicago native, he has a vested interest in changing the perception of the city’s youth through musical empowerment and paying it forward in this case with the Grammy donation. Chance was recently honored as Best New Artist and Humanitarian at the 2017 BET Awards.
