It’s been an interesting journey to the Grammys this year for Chance The Rapper. Back in October, the Recording Academy made it clear that Chance’s Coloring Book did not play a role in the Grammys rules on what is accepted for nomination. The rule to accept albums of stream was actually a motion put forth in 2014. However, it all works out for Chance.

At the 2017 Grammy Awards, Chance The Rapper celebrated his first Grammy. Taking home the Grammy for Best New Artist, it seemed written to full status for the Chicago-bredded artist.

Drake even sent out a congratulations message to Chance, following his win.
